Annual General Meeting 2020

The FTCA AGM is 23 September, Wednesday 7.30 pm at the community centre.

The Lord Mayor Anna Reynolds and Hobart City Council officers will attend the AGM to discuss the traffic and parking situation with Fern Tree and Wellington Park (kunanyi).
There will be an opportunity to discuss and hear the various constraints and strategies for improved access such as the proposed visitor centre at Halls Saddle.

Fern Tree FTCA AGM September 2020


A planned update to the FTCA constitution is to be put to the upcoming Annual General Meeting in August 2020 for acceptance.
The driver for an update to the Association’s Constitution came from the modernisation of the Tasmanian Government Model Rules Regulations [reference: Associations Incorporation (Model Rules) Regulations 2017]. The major changes include use of electronic banking and electronic (email) communication.

Changing the Constitution requires the acceptance of a special resolution at a general meeting of the Association. To be passed it requires the support of 75% of those present and eligible to vote. Our next general meeting is the AGM.

Key parts of the existing Constitution that remain unchanged include the basic objects and purposes of FTCA (ie why the Association exists) and the geographical area from which residents are eligible to be members.

The committee meets each month on the second Tuesday, 7.30pm at the Fern Tree Community Centre. Please join us, and look for our regular events!!
