After having the Constitution and Code of Conduct approved by a vote, and getting five people to sign a note giving me permission to act as the public officer, I shunted off to Fair Trade to make us all official and whatnot. They didn’t need to see the signed permission but the guy did point out that saying you one but not having one is fraud.
WIRD is now officially non profit, can now apply for Skate Australia membership and insurance and move our skating indoors – YAY!
(If you’re struggling to put together a Constitution and Code of Conduct drop me a line at email@example.com – ours is modelled on several we were sent in the early days and we want to keep spreading the virus!)
So good you need to share it?

Angela J Williams, PhD, is a writer, illustrator and story teller from Wollongong, Australia.
She is the author of Snakes and Ladders: a memoir and host of the Deboning Power Podcast.
A writer, thinker and yeller, Angela Williams is mildly notorious for seeing problems and pointing them out. She’s tussled with Fred Nile in the Sydney Morning Herald, taken academia to task in the Guardian’s Anonymous Academic, gone to Crikey about the treatment of mentally ill women in prison, and most recently blown the whistle on dangerous risks in her (former) charity workplace. Angela does one thing really well – find problems and yell about them.
