Blazing Swan Incorporated

Blazing Swan Incorporated is a Not-For-Profit community Association that is incorporated in Western Australia.

The Association members elect and give broad direction to a Committee which runs the day-to-day affairs of the Association.   The Committee is also bound by the rules laid out in the Association Constitution, and all relevent Laws. The Committee meets weekly, and the records of those meetings are made available to Association members.

The Committee is always available to discuss matters with Association members, but at least annually (and usually more often) the Committee will join with the members in a General Meeting.  The records of those General Meetings will be posted on this page.
