Council Procedures

Each Council appoint a President who serves for a period of up to three years at the discretion of the Council. Each Council also nominates one of its members, often the Division President, for appointment to the Australian Institute of Company Directors board for a period of up to three years. If the Councillor is appointed by the board to serve as a Division Director, that Councillor will also continue as a member of the Council (as the Division Director Councillor) while they hold the position of Division Director.

Elected Council members must retire at the end of their three-year term; however, a retiring member may be eligible for re-election. Generally, the maximum time a Council member may serve on the Council without Board approval is nine consecutive years.
