As there has been various changes in reach and scope of the organisation since 2010, the board decided at the strategic meeting held in 2016 that the organisation's constitution should be changed to reflect this reality.
Two things significantly influenced this: firstly, CABSA has for many years been providing services outside of southern Africa; In addition, CABSA has also increasingly focused on sexual and gender-based violence.
Various practical points in the constitution has also become outdated, such as the provisions around a management committee.
The board therefore adapted the constitution and formally accepted this at its meeting on the 29th of March 2017. According to the constitution, it should also be presented at the annual general meeting.
The constitution below will be presented on the 17th of May.
