Constitution

What is a Constitution?

A constitution is a basic set of rules for the daily running of your Affiliate. It outlines the name of your Affiliate, management & committee positions of your affiliate and other conditions under which your Affiliate operates.

Why have a Constitution?

  1. Explain to members and non-members about your Affiliate
  2. Provide guidelines for the daily running of your Affiliate
  3. Help to sort out internal problems and questions.
  4. Are a legal necessity if your Affiliate is incorporated.
  5. Can help in seeking resources from other organisations, such as a government agency.
