A Special General Meeting of Royal United Services Institute of Western Australia Incorporated will be held at Artillery Barracks at 6.00 pm on Tuesday 14 August 2018.


On 1 July 2016 the Associations Incorporation Act 2015came into effect and replaced the Associations Incorporation Act 1987.  The RUSI WA Constitution needs to be updated to comply with the new Act.  The RUSI WA Constitution was reviewed by the RUSI WA Council over recent months and on 28 June 2018 the Council agreed that a new Constitution be presented to a Special General Meeting of RUSI WA members.  The key points concerning transition to the Act are:

  • All associations that were incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act 1987are now incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act 2015.
  • Each association must review and update its rules by 1 July 2019 to ensure the rules comply with the requirements of the new Act.
  • Associations are now required to submit an information statement to Consumer Protection within 6 months after the end of every financial year.
  • New financial reporting requirements apply to accounts prepared for all association financial years commencing on or after 1 July 2016.

Details on the transition requirements are at:


It is proposed that the Royal United Services Institute of Western Australia adopt a new Constitution, as presented.
