Tasmanian committee members

The Tasmanian Regional Committee is an elected body that act as a conduit between fellows and trainees in the Tasmanian region and the ANZCA council to which they report.

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.
