The AIP is governed by a constitution, written by the Federal Executive of the AIP. For enquires email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The revised version of the AIP Constitution and by-laws was voted in at the AGM on 15/2/22
A mapping of the old to new constitution can also be found here.
The AIP Constitution and Bylaws were revised in 2003/4 and accepted by the AIP Membership at the 2004 AGM, held at Melbourne University on February 13, 2004. The primary reason for revising these documents was to simplify the grades of membership. Gender specific references were also removed and some clauses were removed or modified to more accurately reflect the services and operations of the AIP. The new grades of membership are: Associate, Member, Fellow and Honorary Fellow.
The AIP membership committee was never defined in the constitution. The omission was rectified when the AIP Council approved a new by-law, number 74, at its Annual General Meeting in February 2015.
The AIP Constitution and Bylaws were once again revised in 2020/21 and accepted by the AIP Membership at the 2022 AGM, held via Zoom on February 15, 2022. The primary reason for revising these documents was to apply for DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient) status with the ATO which will allow us to receive tax deductible donations. In addition, the constitution was modernised to current practices and written with more inclusive language.
