♦ Until something changes, auDA is a membership organisation.
♦ Members elect 8 out of the 11 Directors (apart from the 3 Independents).
♦ Many members are unhappy with certain decisions of the auDA Board.
♦ Communication and transparency promises have been made – and broken.
♦ As a last resort, members have called a S249 General Meeting to vote on 4 resolutions to address their concerns.
♦ auDA has unilaterally decided to invalidate 3 out of the 4 resolutions (without reason or Court Order).
♦ auDA has just been caught out telling “porkies” about why past Board Minutes will now be returned to their website. This is now starting to get the attention of international bloggers.
♦ Many members now believe there are “other issues” that the Board has not been forthcoming on.
♦ Members will now look at initiating further legitimate action.
If I was a Director of auDA, I’d be urging my fellow Directors to:
♦ Try and repair faith with those that ultimately elect us.
♦ Allow members to exercise their rights via the Corporations Act 2001 and the auDA Constitution.
♦ Allow all 4 resolutions to be put on the meeting agenda.
♦ Put up a solid case as to why the 4 Resolutions shouldn’t be passed.
♦ Allow democracy to take its course – i.e. see what happens with the vote before “going nuclear” (i.e. going to Court).
As bruising as it may be to some egos within auDA, common sense and respect for members must surely prevail here.
Please do the right thing – it’s not hard. Allow the S249D meeting to go ahead with all 4 resolutions.
