Applying to be on council
The APEG Council is open to nominations from any APEG member, every 2 years. The nominations are open before the Annual Scientific Meeting in the year of election, and this is announced through the APEG monthly email update, plus the newsletter.
A nomination form can be found HERE.
The voting is conducted during the AGM held at the conference.
Councils are elected at the Annual Scientific Meeting in ‘odd number’ years, and run for 2 years.
Being a Council Member
As a council member of APEG, you are asked to be part of 1 hour telephone hook up each month where issues surrounding APEG are discussed. This meeting is usually held on the last Thursday of the month at 3.00pm (AEST or AEDST). In addition to the monthly meetings you will be asked to attend a 2 day, face to face meeting, normally held in Sydney in February-March each year. You are also often part of one of the many subcommittees that support the work of the council.
