State Council is our governing body. It is made up of representatives from each member council.
State Council’s powers include:
- determining the Rules of the Association
- electing the president and other members of the Board
- determining our strategic direction
- appointing the auditor.
State Council meets twice a year, or more if needed. Members can submit business to be considered by State Council in accordance with the MAV Rules.
Representatives vote on matters before State Council.
Resolutions adopted by State Council are assessed by the Board to determine how they will be progressed. Updates on the progress made against each resolution are sent to members before the next meeting.
2020 State Council Dates

Motion submissions will open in early March and early July respectively, and will be due no later than 28 days prior to each meeting. We will once again be utilising the online submission format, which will be distributed to councils 10 weeks prior to State Council.
