Overseas Aid Committee

Committees navigation


The Overseas Aid Committee oversees ANZCA's overseas aid initiatives and reports to the Professional Affairs Executive Committee and hence to Council.  In 2010, this committee was formalised from the Overseas Working Group first established in 2009.


Council has developed terms of reference for the committees that report to it. The aim is to streamline both council and committee work by clarifying the purpose of and arrangements for committees, particularly to define which functions are delegated to committees (and reported through to council) and which require council approval. The terms of reference includes standardised definitions of a quorum, voting rules and that electronic decisions should be recorded in the minutes of the next meeting.
