PACA Constitution Feedback & Suggestions: PACA constitution is available on our website (download link). We are looking forward to modernize the PACA constitution and cover all aspects of the community work that current PACA team and community is doing using latest technologies.
A few suggestions are as following:
2. On suggestion at last AGM by members, PACA team had given non paid general community membership to each and every community members attending PACA events (via by law) and will be proposing it to be part of the constitution for good.
3.PACA is registered with Office of Fair Trading (OFT) and these by-laws needs to be aligned with OFT. Elections to be held with Office Of Fair Trading Representatives or recommended approved third parties.
Note: Despite our positive volunteers efforts to elevate community, we faced recent hurtful misinformation spread on social media. As a fact, our team has given membership to each and every person and have not rejected a single membership and have not stopped or disqualified any single person to contest election. We truly welcome each and every community member to be not just our member but run for election to take the responsibility and serve the community in true spirit!
For any questions, please reply back or by contacting PACA President/volunteer Syed Asghar Naqvi on 0424744111. As volunteers, we can take up to 24-48 hours to return any queries.
