Club Constitution

The Combined Mornington Probus Club operates under the terms of the Incorporated Model Probus Club Constitution. This Constitution includes the Probus Club accreditation requirements as well as the legislative requirements relevant to each state. The Constitution is comprised of 7 pages and because of limitations as to file size, it is necessary for each individual page to be stored on the site rather than the complete document in one file.

Individual pages may be viewed here:

By-Laws are a set of "house keeping" or management rules a Club may choose to set in place to regulate their internal affairs in accordance with the wishes of the membership. A By-Law cannot be in conflict with an Article of the Constitution. To amend a By-Law; 21 days written notice must be given to all members. A 75% majority vote of those members present and voting is required to formally adopt the motion by Special Resolution.

The Combined Mornington Probus Club does not have By-Laws but is governed by Standing Resolutions.


Standing Resolutions

Standing Resolutions are similar to By-Lawsinsofar as they set out ongoing internal rules for the Club which may be changed from time to time. Standing Resolutions are however simply resolutions of the Club, and all that is required for them to be amended is for the Club to pass a different Standing Resolution in the future. A Standing Resolution shall not be in conflict with an Article of the Constitution. A Standing Resolution may be moved at a general meeting from the floor with or without due notice depending on the situation.
