2021 Annual General Meeting
The AICD will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Wednesday 17 November 2021 at 5.00pm (AEDT).
To enable as many members as possible to participate in the meeting (and given the continuing uncertainty in relation to public health restrictions that may apply as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic), the 2021 AGM will be held as a virtual meeting.
Further information on the 2021 AGM, including how to participate in the meeting, can be accessed here.
The governing body of our organisation, the Board, provides oversight within the framework of relevant legislation (including the Corporations Act), Constitution and the Board Charter.
The responsibilities of the Board include setting and reviewing our strategic direction, monitoring organisational performance, the appointment of the CEO and deciding on key policy positions to take on behalf of directors.
The Board consists of up to 12 directors. There are 4 National Directors, one of whom is the chair, and 7 Division directors. The procedure for the appointment of directors can be found in our Constitution.
The AICD maintains a Board Skills Matrix that sets out the mix of skills and experience of each director, which is reviewed annually. The Board Skills Matrix is found here.
We are a federation of 7 State and Territory Divisions. Each Division maintains a local office and is advised and supported by a Division Council.
The role and responsibility of Division Councils, as documented in the Division Council Charter, includes:
- to advise the Board and CEO on policy and membership matters;
- to administer membership (including the approval of new members and upgrades); to represent us in the Division's territory and;
- to support the operations of the office (events, member service and education programs).
Further details regarding the framework, composition, responsibility and operation of Division Councils are contained in our By-Laws, which are in addition to, and supplement the provisions contained in, the Constitution (Article 9).
