WACA Governance Review
With a focus on good governance, the WACA has undertaken a review of the Association's Charter and Constitution.
In 2014, the WACA Board initiated a governance review that resulted in the adoption of a Governance Charter in September 2015.
The review also proposed a number of structural and operational initiatives that are currently being progressed.
With a commitment to engaging with its Members, the WACA conducted a survey in November 2015 to obtain views and feedback on various proposed constitutional changes. The results of the survey and a report from Steven Cole are available below:
Following consideration of these results, and to ensure we continue to inform Members, the WACA held a series of forums to provide information and discuss governance issues.
The below documents provide an overview of the discussions held at previous Member forums, as well as questions and responses which were addressed for Members.

The WACA has also engaged with other stakeholders, such as members of the Statewide Game Development Committee, to ensure any changes to the Constitution meet their needs and expectations.
A final proposed Constitution was voted on unanimously by the WACA Board in March:
WACA Members voted on the proposed Constitution at a General Meeting on Thursday 27 April, resulting in the current Constitution being retained.
