AFTINET structures and constitution
The AFTINET constitution provides a basic democratic structure for the organisation. Members elect a working group which administers the organisation. The working group keeps membership and financial records and reports to annual general meetings of members. AFTINET is registered under Commonwealth legislation as a non-profit company limited by guarantee to limit the financial liability of members to their membership fee.
Organisations and individuals who do not wish to become members can become subscribers. This means they receive all other benefits of membership but cannot vote at meetings and are not bound by the constitution.
A copy of the constitution is available from firstname.lastname@example.org.
