What is the role of the Executive Council?

The Executive Council is the governing body of the ANZCCJ, consisting of 12 Councillors. As a group, the Executive Council determines the Chamber’s policies and priorities and oversees its financial affairs. The main roles and responsibilities of Executive Council members include: 

  • Furthering the Chamber’s core mission, setting key strategic objectives and ensuring activities align.
  • Helping the ANZCCJ deliver real value for its members, as well as outreach to new and potentially beneficial members.
  • Being a senior representative for the ANZCCJ, attending ANZCCJ meetings and events.
  • Actively participating in or chairing one or more ANZCCJ committees or working groups that deal with specific issues or initiatives, acting as a liaison between the Executive Council and that Committee/working group. This initiative will draw from the EC members’ strengths and skills, align with their current profession or interests, and provide further learning and development opportunities. 
  • Acting as MC or moderator at events, particularly those related to the Committee with which the council member is affiliated. 
  • Overseeing the Secretariat’s management of the ANZCCJ’s operations.

How will voting take place?
