The board of SPASA NSW & ACT has put forward a special resolution to its members to consider that they approve the board’s authority to continue collaborating with SPASA Australia and the other SPASA states towards a unified SPASA national model. The purpose is to improve member services and industry value by positioning SPASA Australia as a unified, single entity national body supporting and delivering improved benefit to all members Australia wide.
SPASA NSW & ACT has also supplied this explanatory statement.
EXPLANATORY STATEMENT for the Special Resolution
Current discussions regarding forming a single-entity association have been driven by the belief that the common mission for SPASA and the State bodies would be better advanced by ideally having one entity operating across Australia: Advantages include (but are not limited too):
• provide one single clear voice representing all of the industry sectors
• increased brand recognition and consumer awareness
• have greater financial strength to support the industry
• train and educate members through common programs
• build a single stronger national brand profile
• deliver superior member services
• give greater focus to accreditation and trade qualifications
• carry greater weight when dealing with government agencies and authorities
• increase returns from networking opportunities to share, learn, mentor and support
The motion requires a special resolution and a majority of at least 75 per cent of the ordinary members present and voting, either in person or by proxy, to be carried.
The AGM will be held at the SPASA Office, 1/33 Daking Street, NORTH PARRAMATTA NSW 2151 on the 16th March 2016 at 6.00pm.
