Australia Regional Council Elections and Appointments

Join one of our Australian Regional Councils and make a difference.

We look for full CA ANZ members to sit on our Regional Councils across Australia, and encourage all members to consider applying no matter what age, experience, sector or cultural background so that our Regional Councils are truly representative of our members in each region.

Each Regional Council is made up of six elected and three appointed members.

Each year in Australia we have a number of Regional Council positions to fill, a mix of elected and appointed positions.

These positions are generally for a three-year term, and are open to all eligible members in the region. The elected positions are voted on by members in the region. Appointed positions are approved by Regional Councils thereafter.
