Can a life member who pays the dues also be an ordinary member? Under our constitution life members do not have voting rights while ordinary financial members do. The organisation is a NFP ( Not for Profit) incorporated association. Further, if this member does not have voting rights, does this also prevent him from nominating other members for election to the Management Committee? The constitution says under 19 (1) (a) "any 2 members of the association may nominate another member (the candidate) to serve as a member of the management committee".
