Appointment of APAL Board Directors

Board information

Under APAL’s constitution, state-representative director positions automatically lapse at the end of their three-year term, triggering the nomination process and the appointment of directors at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in November.

All six state-representative positions, as well as the director representing pears, renew across a three-year cycle.

The director selection process is detailed in APAL’s Constitution and in summary involves three steps.

  1. APAL calls for nominations – existing directors are eligible to renominate.

All nominations are considered by the Director Selection Committee. The committee’s role is to recommend a preferred candidate to the board and the membership. In making its recommendation the committee considers the individual candidates as well as well as the mix of skills required by the board to enable it to fulfill its role and APAL’s strategic goals.

  1. Once the committee confirms its preferred candidate, other members can nominate as an alternative director candidate.
  2. If alternate candidates nominate, the appointment is determined by a vote by the membership at the AGM. If there is only one nomination the candidate will be confirmed at the AGM.
