Procedures

The Society Procedure Guide sets out the main functions and duties for the Society.

Society Procedure Guide revised and approved by Executive Committee on 4 July 2013

Division Rotational Model

This model is based on the principle that the four Divisional representatives on Council, for any one two-year term,
should collectively be as representative as possible of the wide variation in the geography, membership numbers,
and composition of our eight Divisions.

The Divisions have been classified as follows (based on membership numbers in 2012):

(a) Large membership (WA: 523; NSW: 426; Qld: 416; Vic: 296); Medium (SA: 202; ACT: 182) and Small (Tas: 117 and NT: 29);
(b) Resource-oriented States: WA, Qld, SA and NT;
(c) Non-resource/mixed economy: NSW; Vic; ACT; and Tas.

These categories have then been considered according to the following criteria: that two resource-oriented and
two non-resource-oriented (or mixed economy) Divisions should be represented at any one time; that
two Divisions in each of those two categories should be geographically separated, if possible; and that the mix of large,
medium and small Divisions results in approximately equal representation of membership numbers in each two year term.

For more detail please refer to page 3 of the Procedure Guide

Nominating Councillors
Positions on the GSA Councillor are conducted by ballot. There are two types of Councillor: Division Councillor and General Councillor.
Each Council will have four Division Councillors and five General Councillors. The Division Councillors are determined at the Division
Annual General Meeting and the General Councillors are determined by postal ballot. Note: Only current financial members of the GSA can nominate or vote.

The GSA Council Election process includes essential information regarding the process, interpretation and references to the Rules, timeline and nomination information.
This information applies to both the Division and General Councillor.

The Division Councillor Nomination Form is the form to be used for all nominations.
If you are in the ACT, Victoria and Western Australia you can nominate to be a Division Councillor.
Voting is done at the Division Annual General Meeting.
Your Division will communicate with you when the nomination forms are due and when they are holding their Annual General Meeting.

 The General Councillor Nomination Form is the form to be used for all general nominations.

Calls for General Nominations will be made after the 6 April.
