    Delegates at the 2015 VCAWA Annual General Meeting will have the opportunity to vote on a special resolution to merge the association with Tourism Council WA (TCWA).

    TCWA and VCAWA have been working together as a single organisation over the past two years to better represent and service Visitor Centres across WA.

    To further this partnership, it is proposed that the two organisations merge to become a single legal entity. The Boards of both organisations have agreed to a Memorandum of Understanding which details how the merger would work, and the final decision now lies with the members of these associations. 

    The VCAWA Board recommends the following special resolution to the 2015 AGM:

    "This General Meeting of the Visitor Centre Association of Western Australia Ltd (VCAWA) determines to provide a strong and united voice for visitor centres by merging with Tourism Council Western Australia Ltd in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding between VCAWA & TCWA. The VCAWA resolves that the association be wound up voluntarily 14 days from the passing of this resolution and in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding between VCAWA & TCWA."

    Tourism Council WA members will be voting on a Special Resolution regarding the merger at their AGM on Monday, September 21. 

    The VCAWA AGM will take place on Wednesday, September 23 from 3.45pm at Crown Perth during the 2015 WA Tourism Conference.
