DCA sorts out quorum numbers

02 Jul 2009

The Docklands Community Association recently had to iron out a seemingly minor anomaly in their constitution, but one that could have proved a stumbling block.

According to DCA president Roger Gardner, following their recent AGM they found they didn’t have a quorum.

“When our constitution was drawn up, it included unrealistically high quorum levels – way above government guidelines. These were set by a previous committee ... but it made it almost impossible for the DCA to function,” he said.

The DCA quorum levels required 12 for an AGM and seven for a committee, while government guidelines recommend five for an AGM and four for a committee.

“Seven for the committee was more than the total number on the committee, which gave us a lot of trouble to begin with, but reductions to these levels have since been passed at the subsequent AGM. This will now enable us to get on with the job,”
Mr Gardner said.

The DCA committee now comprises Roger Gardner, Paige Jay and Tanja Karavesor.
