Constitutional Reform

For the past eight months the Woroni Board of Editors have run a series of consultations to review the ANU Student Media Constitution and discuss whether changes could and should be made. Having gathered and reviewed this information ourselves, the Board would like to recommend some changes to the Constitution to ensure it is up-to-date, consistent and highly functional. In order for these proposed changes to be passed, Woroni must host a General Meeting where members of the Association (i.e. ANU students) are able to vote on the proposed changes.
