State Council

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.

Decision-making

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.

State Council Meeting - November 2021

It is with regret we have decided not to proceed with the State Council meeting planned Friday 12 November 2021.

The health and safety of our members, staff and guests is always of paramount importance to us. The increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Victoria along with growing uncertainty around the easing of restrictions, has resulted in us deciding to cancel the event.

The next State Council will be held in May 2022.
