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.

The next MAV State Council meeting will be held from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm on Friday 24 June 2022 at Sofitel Melbourne on Collins, 25 Collins Street Melbourne.
