Optometry Western Australia - Special General Meeting - Monday 20th May 2019

OWA President, Rob Howie, wrote to you nearly three months ago to advise that the OWA had recently completed a review and update of our Constitution as required by the State Department of Mines, Industry, Regulation and Safety.  As well as aligning the new constitution with the requirements of the Act, OWA also took the opportunity to review our objectives, powers and update other elements of our Constitution, so it remained relevant and responsive to our members needs and offered the highest possible level of governance and integrity.
