Model District Constitution

This is an model of District Constitution approved by General Council.

The General Council will issue model constitutions for all Groups, Districts and Regions on the 15th October 2012.

These constitutions have two parts "Section A" and "Section B".

If you wish to adopt the model constitution without changes you need to do nothing and your Group, District or Region Constitution will automatically be updated at Head Office and sent to you.

If you wish to make adjustments to "Section A" which outlines the powers, objects, members and other administrative affairs of your relevant Branch you will need to seek permission from General Council prior to 1st January 2013. (This may take up to three to four weeks and require negotiations)

If you wish to make amendments to "Section B" which outlines the officers, how committees work, Annual Meeting and other operational affairs of the branch then you may make amendments at any time of your choosing and inform General Council. Any amendments to Section B are not valid until General Council has received a copy of the amended rules and their delegated committee (FGP) has ratified them. (Usually this takes one to two weeks)

Volunteering

Woodcraft Folk runs on the passion and energy of thousands of volunteers.

Volunteers are right at the heart of this work and we're always looking for more, to strengthen our groups and create new ones.
