ACHPER WAs new rules

Review

As a consequence of changes to the Associations Incorporation Act (2015), ACHPER WA has recently updated its Constitution. A formal adoption of the Rules took place at a Special General Meeting on Tuesday 31st July at PLCs the Lighthouse.

The updated constitution (The Rules) can be viewed here ACHPER WA The Rules 2018 (Proposed)

At the same time ACHPER WA also refined our objects and purposes that succinctly encompass what ACHPER WA are about:
• support and promote healthier, safer and more active living to the people of Western Australia;
• inspire, demonstrate and advocate excellence in the teaching and learning of health and physical education and other related learning in schools and communities; and
• engage and partner with members, teachers, schools, communities, peak bodies and likeminded associations.

Board member, lawyer and ultra-marathon runner, Jamie Blanchard, also provided the meeting delegates with a  presentation on the philosophy and psychology of rules. He discussed an example of the rules of the world’s toughest ultra marathon, and what this can teach us about how rules work and how to work with rules.

ACHPER WA give thanks to  PLC for allowing us to have the meeting at the Lighthouse, and also to Matt Donaldson for setting up the use of the venue and taking us on a tour of the facilities, and to Jamie for his thought provoking presentation.
