Public Comment: VATPAC Constitution

Recommended Posts

Comments are sought from VATPAC members on the VATPAC Constitution which is to be proposed to the Board for adoption. 

This document has been produced as a result of consultations in September-October this year with the Board, staff members and more generally at the recent Town Hall meeting.

If you wish to make a submission, you may do so in writing to director at vatpac dot org. Submissions must be submitted by Tuesday 11 December 2018 at 23:59 AEDT.

The board met yesterday to consider this and I'm pleased to announce that the Board unanimously agreed to adopt our constitution. The final text will be published on the website in the coming days.

With assistance from the community, the Board believes that it has been developed to strike a balance between ensuring that the Board behaves in a transparent and accountable manner while giving the Board enough flexibility to do its job.

It is the vision of the Board that this document will serve as the key governance document for our organisation, second only to the VATSIM COR. It is important that boards present and future act in accordance with the constitution. Members play an important part in keeping the Board accountable for its actions and any actions which are inconsistent with the constitution should be questioned. Where the response of the Board to such questioning is inadequate, there is recourse to the Oceania regional director for adjudication. 

I would like to thank all of those members who have contributed to the development of the constitution, including some members who have departed the Board in recent months, staff members, those participating in the town hall meeting late last year and those making submissions on the discussion paper.
