Become a councillor

Contribute to the work that we do in your local area.

Our councils provide guidance and strategic input into the direction of our activities.

We have seven state and territory division councils. Each council serves an important purpose by advising our board and CEO on:

  • Policy matters affecting directors; 
  • Issues relating to the AICD membership; and
  • The strategy and policies of the AICD itself.

Council members consider applications for our various membership grades and provide oversight of the Director Professional Development program and its function in the membership. Councillors also model AICD aspirations in their state or territory, developing relationships with local leaders in directorship, regulation, and politics. 

These are some of the ways our division and state councils contribute to our work in developing the capabilities of leaders in Australia and across the world. For further information, please see our Division Council Charter.

How are councillors elected?

Each division and state council holds an annual election for positions of retiring councillors between July and October. Councils send notices to members of their division by post or email, calling for nominations from its members to fill those positions.

To be eligible, a member must have been an MAICD, GAICD or FAICD for a minimum of three consecutive years prior to the election.

If you're interested in standing for election, keep an eye out for a notice from your local division about election dates, the number of positions vacant and other important information.
