AWA Board

Main Image

The AWA is what it is because of the commitment of its board members.  We look to combine the experience of long-standing members who bring with them corporate knowledge, and newer members who bring to the AWA refreshing energy and new ideas.

Board members are nominated by a committee and elected at an Annual General Meeting. They hold office for a period of not longer than two consecutive years.

If you would like more information about policies pertaining to the Board, see our Constitution.
