IAHA’s changing to be a Company – Don’t Get Left Behind!!!

At our Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Brisbane on 24 November 2012, IAHA Members voted to transfer our organisational structure to a "Company Limited by Guarantee" (CLG) under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (Corporations Act). This transition will support IAHA growth into the future as a national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health peak body. As part of the transition process, we require the consent and agreement of all current Members to become a member of the new IAHA Ltd.
In order to keep disruptions to membership to a minimum, we would be grateful if all IAHA Members could complete, sign and return this form by 31 March 2013.
Please note:
If current Members choose not to sign and return the form, they will cease to be a member once we transfer into a company  in April 2013. However, can reapply anytime in the future.
Please contact us or visit the members section of the IAHA website if you have any questions about the process and to view the new Constitution..
