The election process for new CA ANZ Regional Councillor positions

Each year, Chartered Accountants ANZ look for proactive and enthusiastic members who want to get involved with the governance groups representing members across the region as Councillors.

In Brief

  • Nominations for elected positions for Australia, New Zealand and Overseas Councils will open on 2 August 2021
  • Elections for Australia, New Zealand and Overseas Councils will be held in September 2021
  • Applications for appointed positions in Australia, New Zealand and Overseas will open on 14 October 2021

CA ANZ has in place a number of Regional Councils made up of both elected and appointed Councillors to represent members in CA ANZ jurisdictions around the world. Regional Councils have the opportunity to provide input into member issues and act as a valuable conduit of information and member views. The 2021 election/appointment processes to fill positions on these Regional Councils will shortly commence.

The nomination period for elected positions is 12pm AEST from 2 August to 31 August 2021. If more than one nomination is received for these elected positions, an election process will be held for members in the region to vote.
