    Special Resolution – Rules Change

    This year we have been revising our rules to bring them into line with the Co-operatives National Law which was passed in 2012.

    By bringing the Blue Mountains Food Co-op into line with the national law, it signals an important next step for the Co-op’s development and growth. A fitting way to acknowledge the considerable effort and gains made over the 40 years of the Co-op’s existence that will strengthen the Co-ops ability to ensure a dynamic and secure future for the benefit of members and the broader mountains community.
    The new rules once adopted will come into effect once they’ve been registered with the Department of Fair Trading.

    You can view our new draft rules along with the current 2010 rules here.

    The main changes under the new rules are as follows:

    • All rights of membership available immediately to new members but the board can refuse membership in first 2 months.
    • Term for directors set at 3-years with a cap of 2 consecutive terms for all directors elected from 2020. A director wishing to re-nominate after two consecutive terms needs to wait for 2 years to re-nominate
    • Employee board position removed
    • End of financial year moved from June 30 to March 31

    For a full description of all the rule changes read more here.
