WYNNUM SUB BRANCH INCORPORATED CONSTITUTION

What is a Sub Branch?

The 'Sub Branch' is the RSL in action in the local community. Its role is to serve the needs of its members, other members of the ex-services community and members of the ADF and their dependants in a close geographic area to the Sub Branch.

It does this by:

  • Providing a means for members to enjoy camaraderie and mateship;
  • Providing welfare and social support services to those members and other ex-service men and women when they require it;
  • Providing advocacy and representation for all ex-service men and women regardless of their membership in the league as required;
  • Running Commemoration and remembrance activities in the local community and supporting education activities;
  • Supporting democratic principles and fostering good citizenship among the young people in the local community;
  • Managing RSL assets for the benefits of its members; and
  • Providing a respected and meaningful voice within the local community.
