The vote was 42 in-favour, and 17 against.  However, the Resolution did not carry as it required 75%.

The Resolution proposed was that the 5 May 2018 meeting held by members be recognised as the valid AGM for 2018.

Because this did not pass Vivienne Fox continued as the recognised President of the HEA after 5 May 2018.

A Special General Meeting was held on 22nd June. The meeting contained a Special Resolution put forward by the Committee for the Members to vote upon. 
 
The vote was 42 in-favour, and 17 against.  However, the Resolution did not carry as it required 75%.
The Resolution proposed was that the 5 May 2018 meeting held by members be recognised as the valid AGM for 2018.

Because this did not pass, formal annual reporting decisions made at the 2018 meeting, including the dissolving of the the previous committee, did not hold. This means that Vivienne Fox continued as the recognised President of the HEA after 5 May 2018 and, as stated above, she therefore delivered the official annual reports for the HEA for 2017 and 2018 at this weekend's EGM.
 
*If you missed the Meetings: EGM and SGM Reports, Minutes, Chronologies, Position Paper, and Karen's Slide-Presentation are available in the Members' Section of the HEA Website under Minutes

 

EGM held immediately after SGM:

Formal Association Minutes and Activity Reports were delivered by Vivienne Fox for 2017 and 2018, in her capacity as the recognised President for both years. All reporting requirements have now been satisfied for the Office of Fair Trading and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

The EGM was held this past Saturday on 22 June 2019, fulfilling the remainder of the annual reporting requirements for 2017 and 2018.

Treasurer David Walters submitted both the 2017 & 2018 Financial Reports to the ACNC on 23 June.
