HKPA Extraordinary General Meeting 2023

The Hong Kong Physiotherapy Association Limited (HKPA) would like to announce that an Extraordinary General Meeting shall be convened on the requisition in writing by Prof. Marco PANG, HKPA President so as to seek your support to adopt the new HKPA Articles of Association.

With the fact that the constitutional documents of HKPA have not been reviewed for a long period of time, HKPA has engaged an external consultant, Ms. Margaret GRANT (Appendix I), to undertake a collaborative process with the HKPA Executive Committee, Chairpersons of the HKPA Specialty / Working Groups and HKPA members to review and update the current HKPA Memorandum and Articles (M&A) of Association.

The overall aim of the review and update is to reduce the risk on HKPA by ensuring its governing document reflects good governance principles and complies with any legislative requirements for a company limited by guarantee.

The following consultations were conducted to collect feedback from HKPA Executive Committee, Chairpersons of the HKPA Specialty / Working Groups, legal adviser and HKPA members:


Date Mode Target Participants
7 May 2022 Zoom HKPA Executive Committee members
11 May 2022 Zoom HKPA Specialty Groups / Working Groups Chairpersons

6 Oct 2022 Zoom HKPA members
18 Oct 2022 Email HKPA legal adviser
18 Dec 2022 Email HKPA legal adviser
13 Feb 2023 Hybrid HKPA members

Since no further feedback was received in the final member consultation session on 13 Feb 2023, the final draft of the new HKPA Articles would be put forward for endorsement in the HKPA EGM on 25 Mar 2023.The final draft of the new HKPA Articles as well as the comparative table illustrating the difference between the proposed new HKPA Articles and the current HKPA M&A can be downloaded here.

If you are not able to access the aforesaid documents in the HKPA website, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Sam WAN at smallwan3340@yahoo.com.hk.

Finally, thank you for your continuous support to HKPA.

Yours sincerely,
Prof. Marco PANG
