In November 2005, BoardWorks International (Australia) Pty Ltd was commissioned to conduct a review of Rowing Australia. Specifically, as stated in the brief, the objective of the review is:
To review and make recommendations on the adequacy and effectiveness of the governance arrangements within and between Rowing Australia (RA) and its state members in delivering national strategies, policies and rules, and in complying with good practice for governance of sporting organisations including corporate governance principles.
The report was considered by the RA Board and Council in June and July 2006 where consensus was achieved with regard to the review outcomes.
The constitutional amendments resulting from the review outcomes were voted on at the 2006 Annual General Meeting.
The revised constitution — resolved by special resolution on 30 January 2007 — is available at right.
