2021 Annual General Meeting 

The AICD held 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 would apply as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic), the 2021 AGM was held as a virtual meeting. 

Further information on the 2021 AGM, including the meeting webcast, can be accessed here 

Our board

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 currently consists of 12 directors, including 4 National Directors, one of whom is the chair, 7 Division Directors and the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer. 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.

Our divisions

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 of Division Councils, as documented in the Division Council Charter, is to provide advice to the Board and to support the Board and AICD management in fulfilling the AICD’s purpose set out in its Constitution.

Further details regarding the composition, responsibility and operation of Division Councils are contained in the Division Council Charter, which are in addition to, and supplement the provisions contained in, the Constitution (Article 8.189).
