  • a quorum for committee meetings is 4
  • a quorum for general meetings, including AGM, is 7 including at least 3 office holders
  • a special general meeting can be requisitioned by 10% of members
  • financial year July-June with AGM by 30 Sept that year
  • no cash payments over $50, all other transactions by cheque
  • the secretary is the public officer
  • audit exemption applies but a special general meeting can request an audit
  • any rules not specified by the DFJSC constitution defaults to the model rules for associations
