Who is the property trust?
The Trust (ABN 73 068 989 953) is a perpetual, “legal person” constituted and incorporated under the 1947 Act. Amongst other things, the 1947 Act sets out the purpose and powers of the Trust;
its relationship to Conference; and other matters – for example – the process for churches passing special resolutions.
The Trust (board) consists of up to nine members each elected by Conference for nine-year terms.
Since local churches and the Conference are seen to be a collection of individuals, it is necessary to have a trustee or trustees to hold property and to enter into contracts.
Contact the Trust for information about the board meeting schedule and agenda submission requirements (including agenda, “cut-off” dates).
