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
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Stage 4 restrictions in place in metropolitan Melbourne, the Annual Meeting of State Council, scheduled for Friday 11 September is unable to proceed. In accordance with the MAV Rules 2013, the President determined to defer the 2020 Annual Meeting of the State Council to occur immediately prior the May 2021 State Council meeting, after considering the MAV Board recommendation to do so. As a consequence of this deferral, a virtual Forum for MAV Representatives will be held on Friday 11 September to provide an update on sector and MAV activities during 19/20.
