Notice of Special Resolution
The TCA Board seeks to move a special resolution at the General Meeting which will move to amend TCA’s constitution.  The Special Resolution Motion reads:
That the following amendments be made to the Tourism Central Australia Constitution with the endorsement of TCA’s Membership

Board Definition
 
Delete the words “eight to” and “three” and add in the words “four” to replace the word “three” and the words “Barkly Regional Council,” after the reference to Alice Springs Town Council. The new clause will now read:
“Board means the Management Board of the Association and shall be called a Board. The Board is comprised of ten elected Board Members and up to four non-voting Stakeholder representatives nominated from Tourism Central Australia’s key stakeholders; Alice Springs Town Council, Barkly Regional Council, Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife Commission and Tourism NT.
It is proposed that the current section 23 and Part 2 Additional Details be deleted and be replaced with a new section 23 that reads:
 
23. Composition of the Board
 
(1) The Board shall consist of 10 elected Board Members serving for two-year terms with 5 of these Directors being elected annually at the Annual General Meeting in accordance with Division 3 of the Constitution.
 
In addition, the following organisations are invited to nominate persons to fulfil Stakeholder positions, without voting rights on the Board. These invitations will be sent when notice is given for an Annual General Meeting. Stakeholders will be invited to serve a two-year term. Stakeholder representatives include:
• One (1) person appointed by the Chief Executive Officer of Tourism NT (or their renamed and/or equivalent organisations from time-to-time) based in Central Australia or their delegate;
• One (1) person appointed by the Chief Executive of the Parks & Wildlife Commission (or their renamed and/or equivalent organisations from time-to-time) based in Central Australia or their delegate;
• One (1) person appointed by the Alice Springs Town Council (or their renamed and/or equivalent organisations from time-to-time), such a person to be an Elected Member of Alice Springs Town Council or their delegate.
• One (1) person appointed by the Barkly Regional Council (or their renamed and/or equivalent organisations from time-to-time), such a person to be an Elected Member of Barkly Regional Council or their delegate.
(2) The Board will consist of the following positions:
(a) a Chairperson;
(b) a Vice-Chairperson;
(c) a Secretary;
(d) a Treasurer; and
(e) any other elected member provided for in the 23(1). Unless elected directly as a separate office holder, the Board must appoint one Board Member to be the Association's public officer.
 
Explanatory notes:
 
The Board in moving this special resolution seeks to clearly articulate the composition of the TCA Board – there are no changes to how the Board is elected nor the number on the Board,  it is merely putting in the constitution clearer language to lessen the need for interpretation.  In the Board Definition Section of the Constitution there is a proposed amendment that seeks to enshrine that the TCA Board comprises of 10 elected members and up to 4 non-voting Stakeholder representatives from our key stakeholders (ASTC, Barkly RC, Tourism Northern Territory and Parks and Wildlife).   The process of electing the 10 elected board is articulated more clearly with an amendment to section 23 which will enshrine that the 10 Directors are elected for two year terms with 50% elected one year and the other 50% elected in the second year.  Both amendments will see no change to how we elect Board Directors, but again puts in clearer language that requires less interpretation.
