The IAQ is an incorporated association under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 (Qld) (Act). It is an industry organisation, run by a management committee of volunteers in accordance with the requirements of the Act and the IAQ’s Rules (Rules). Under the Rules, the management committee is referred to and known as the ‘IAQ Board’ (the Board) and is elected annually at a general meeting of the association.
There is no restriction on the size of the Board and any financial member organisation may nominate a representative. Board members are expected to represent the broader interests of that member’s industry sector and a considerable time commitment is involved.
Members of the Board have various legal responsibilities under the Act and are also expected to participate actively in key decision making processes of the IAQ. As a minimum, Board members are expected to attend regular meetings of the Board and to participate actively in one or more of the various sub-committees and other working groups of the association.
A subcommittee (the Executive Committee) oversees the activities of the organisation and the organisation is managed by the CEO and the Executive Assistant.
