The Association’s rules require that a meeting of members of the Association be held annually. The purpose of the Annual General Meeting is to:
· Receive reports and audited financial statements from the board in respect of the immediately preceding financial year.
· Elect members of the board.
· Consider any other business for which notice has been given in accordance with the rules set out in the Association’s constitution.
· All (voting) members are advised in the notice of the Annual General Meeting about board retirements and nominations for election or re-election. Members are encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting.
The composition of the board reflects the broad range of experience, skills and knowledge required to oversee the management and control of the Association’s business and affairs.
To assist in the execution of its responsibilities, the board has established a number of sub-committees to which the chairperson appoints board members. Sub-committees operate principally in a review or advisory capacity (except where powers are expressly conferred on or delegated to a sub-committee by the board). Sub-committees meet as required either monthly or, in some cases, bi-monthly.
