Australian Blouza Association Incorporated Constitution Review

The current Governing Document (Constitution) is now over 30 years old.

Whilst this has served us well to date, amendments are now required for compliance & administrative purposes. At the same time, we need to ensure that our governing document will continue to serve the Association, and its members, well into the future.

A comprehensive review of the Constitution has been undertaken by the current committee.
