The retiring Executive Committee propose a mandate for the ExCom in 2024 term to transition FACC to continue operation as Company Limited by Guarantee, under ASIC registration for national presence, the good governance framework and establishing the state chapters to better serve the purpose of multi-state activities, cultural inclusion and engagement form our industry partners.
We are now seeking nominations from eligible persons for appointment to the Executive Committee. Nominations must be made using the approved form, available as an attached document to this event invitation. Each nomination must be signed by the nominating FACC members (two are required) and the nominee. Only members or representatives of corporate members can be nominated.
The Executive Committee is the Chamber's equivalent of a board of directors. The Executive Committee meets ten times a year and has a very important role in shaping the future of the Chamber nationally.
