At a Special General Meeting of Members held on 1st June 2019 a vote was carried to amend the current constitution to cover the following changes which were approved and registered by the Office of Fair Trading on 24th July 2019:
The proposed amendments discussed in Rule 5 rationalise the existing categories of membership some of which have become obsolete through time.
These ‘Associates’ would then be eligible for cover under PQI’s public liability insurance whenever they attend meetings or participate in authorised events. This new category will also enable access to the broader Parkinson’s diagnosed community of Queensland.
Our belief these amendments will ensure the intent of the Act while ensuring continued good governance, while enabling succession, continuity, sustainability while ensuring engagement with a broader pool of people living with Parkinson’s in our service delivery and programs. All are important to the future well-being of the Queensland Parkinson’s community.
Parkinson’s Queensland is about to celebrate its 35th Year of service in Queensland and is poised to make improved service delivery in support of the 18,500 Queenslanders diagnosed with Parkinson’s and en excess of 100,000 people living with Parkinson’s. Lurching from one twelve-month election cycle to the next does not enable close engagement with those we serve.
