Making a decision at meetings

  • In line with traditional Aboriginal decision making processes, in the first instance a decision is made by the consensus (agreement) of members.
  • If a consensus (agreement) cannot be achieved, then a decision shall be determined by a show of hands of the full voting members.
  • The Chairperson must declare the result of the decision whether it is carried, carried unanimously, carried by a particular majority or lost & an entry must be posted in the minutes of that meeting stating the proportion of the votes in favour for or against when a show of hands or poll is verified.
  • All motions put to a meeting must be moved & seconded by a full voting member at that meeting.
