Your Society needs your input on the draft ACS Constitution


  • Provide your thoughts on the new ACS Constitution.
  • After Friday 5 August, the final amendments to the draft Constitution will commence based on members' input and the last rounds of legal advice.
  • We'd really like to make sure that we've accurately gauged your views.

An event was held on 27 July to explain the draft ACS constitution, and enable discussion of key features.

The consultation period finishes on Friday 5 August, so we urge you to get your comments in now.

Everything you need to know is here:

You can provide your comments using the web-forms in whichever of the documents suits you best - very short, short or in full detail.

The clauses that we think are most in need of members' attention are:

8. Branches

10. Congress

11. Governing Committee

12. Accountability of the Governing Committee

Comments will be auto-posted to the relevant part of the Online Forum
