What the Committee Does

The role of the Committee is to manage the Club in accordance with the Club’s Constitution, Standing Resolutions and relevant Government legislation.  The membership delegate certain authorities to the Committee by resolution.  However, the Committee does not have the authority to make other decisions without the approval of members.  All of the Committee positions are nominated in accordance with the Club’s Constitution and are duly elected at the Club’s Annual General Meeting.  All members are encouraged to consider a role as a Committee member or an Assistant to a Committee member and the Club will provide training to help members who wish to take on a role on the Committee.

Nominations for Committee positions are called for at the February general meeting.  Members are encouraged to consider positions and nominate prior to the AGM.  Any member may nominate any other member (including themselves), but the nominee must accept the nomination.  Nominations may be made using the form attached below, or by email.  In the case of email, the person initiating the nomination sends an email to the nominee, proposing their nomination.  If the nominee accepts, they simply reply to the email, noting their acceptance and the person you initiated the nomination then forwards this email trail on to the club secretary.

Nominations are called annually for Committee positions:

Executive Committee

   Vice President
  Secretary
  Treasurer

Office Bearers

   Membership Officer
  House Manager
  Welfare Officer
  Guest Speakers Officer
  Trips and Tours Officer(s)
  Out and About Events
  Media Officer
  Technology Officer

Members may also nominate for Assistant positions to any of the Committee positions.  In the event that multiple nominations are received for a particular position, then an election by the membership will proceed. If only a single nomination is received for a position, then that nominee is assumed to have been elected. Note that the position of President each year is filled by the immediate past Vice President.
