Amaze is an incorporated association with Public Benevolent Institution income tax exemption and Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.
Amaze is governed and led by a Board of Directors who are directly elected by our members at our AGM, normally held in November.
Board positions are held for three years on a rotational basis after which a board member must be re-elected. At each AGM three board positions become vacant. Amaze members are welcomed to stand or nominate qualified candidates for these roles up to 2 months before the next AGM.
According to the Amaze constitution only current members can stand for a board position and vote for board members and other motions at the AGM. Members can vote, either in person or online, although there must be a quorum of 20 members present.
Amaze’s community, Autistic people and their families, is at the heart of all we do, therefore it’s vital as part of living this ethos that members of our community are able and are active in this important process to determine who sits on Amaze’s Board of Governors.
