• The ACT Fencing Association Inc. (ACTFA) is the representative body for the sport of Fencing in the ACT.  We are affiliated with the Australian Fencing Federation (AFF) and through the AFF, the Federation Internationale d'Escrime (FIE).

  • ACTFA supports local fencing though providing equipment for clubs to hire, running state competitions, providing local rankings, training and accrediting officials, organising promotional events and media coverage and more.

  • Within the ACT and surrounding areas there are a number of ACTFA affiliated Fencing Clubs providing beginner, intermediate and advanced training and competitions.  Individual fencers are also affiliated with ACTFA, usually through their club membership or they may join ACTFA directly.  ACTFA affiliation permits local fencers to compete nationally and, with additional requirements, internationally through the AFF to the international fencing body, the FIE.

The ACTFA Committee is calling a Special General Meeting to discuss and vote on the following Proposal:

"To move ACTFA from the current July to June financial year cycle to a January to December cycle."

This will:

* Align the financial reporting with the existing annual membership year, ie January to December.
* Align ACTFA financial reporting with the ACT Government Operation Grant and Event Funding calendar year cycle. 
* Align and assist ACTFA membership with AFF calendar year cycle.

To bring about this change the ACTFA Committee will:

* Produce an audited Financial Year Statement for July 2013 to December 2013, and 
* Suggest changes to the ACTFA Constitution at a Special General Meeting.

The proposed changes to the ACTFA Constitution are:

From 16 Annual General Meeting
