SGM for Constitutional Amendment, 6th November 2022

As announced at POWAs last few screenings, POWA’s 2022/2023 committee has decided to propose amendments for the POWA Constitution and as such, have announced a Special General Meeting to take place on the 6th November 2022.

This meeting will be held starting 1:30pm Sunday, held at Joondalup Library’s upstairs meeting rooms.

The proposed amendments, highlighted in yellow in version 4.2, are now available for viewing with this link.

For a reference point to previous Constitutions, here is the current version, in 4.1.

For an outline of what has been changed;

Section 6.II has had a reference to “Students” removed.

Section 9.III.i has had a reference related to Edith Cowan University removed.

Section 9.III.ii has been added.

You must attend the SGM to vote for or against the proposed amendments to the constitution. You must have an active POWA membership to attend the SGM, but be aware that Membership can be purchased at the table before the meeting starts. We will not be discussing the changes to the constitution at the SGM, so be sure to read and understand the changes ahead of time.

As always, feel free to reach out to the committee should you have questions either via Facebook, Discord, or by emailing us at

Do note that POWA’s AGM will be held on the same day. For information regarding that meeting, please see here.
