Proposed rule changes:
The words "or reviewed" need to be inserted between audited and statement so the rule reads:
5.2 The treasurer shall present to the membership an audited or reviewed statement of CAN's accounts for the preceding financial year and those accounts shall be confirmed at the Annual General Meeting.
The words "or reviewed" need to be inserted after the word audited at the end of the rule so the rule reads:
5.4 At the Annual General Meeting, the chairperson shall present a report of CAN's activities since the last Annual General Meeting and the Treasurer shall present a statement of CAN's accounts for the financial year ending 30 June, duly audited or reviewed.
The words "or reviewer" to be added after each occurrence of the word auditor so the rule reads: Auditor or Reviewer
12.1 An auditor or reviewer, who shall not be a Member of the Committee, shall be appointed by the Members of CAN at the Annual General Meeting. The Auditor's or Reviewer's remuneration shall be determined by the Committee.
12.2 Should the position of auditor or reviewer become vacant the Committee may appoint a replacement for the balance of the appointment.
