Call for a General Meeting of the WIA
Under clause 8.3 (b) of the Constitution of the Wireless Institute of Australia a call was made on Tuesday November 29 for a General Meeting of WIA members.

A letter received had four motions, calling for four Directors of the WIA to be “removed immediately as a director of the WIA.”
The four directors are:
- Phil Wait
- Fred Swainston
- Roger Harrison
- Robert Broomhead
The letter called for a General Meeting on the 9th of December. This date would be not possible; however, it does not make the call invalid.
The call document itself was short of the required 100 signatures, and about a quarter were incomplete. However, identical signed letters were found, including one received on Wednesday November 30, meaning that under clause 8.3 (b) of the Constitution, the call for a General Meeting became valid.
The WIA Board of Directors has begun the process of arranging for a General Meeting.
An estimated cost of at least $10,000 would be incurred by printing the notices, mail house enveloping, distributing them by Australia Post to all members, the venue charge and any other expenses.
WIA members can expect notification details by Australia Post, and anticipate the General Meeting is to be held in late January 2017.
