  • The Advisory Representatives Committee (ARC)

    will be made public post the 2014 Awards.

    Additional support to the Leadership Team comes through the Advisory Representatives Committee (ARC) with a number of business sectors being represented that reflects and spearheads its development at this level. The head of each representation is, in effect, his or her sector’s ambassador to the Association.

    These Representatives meet quarterly and their primary role is to prepare the work of the Association and develop extended outreach.

    The Advisory Board Representatives Committee (ARC) Presidency


    The Presidency of the Representatives Committee rotates every three months. In other words, each industry sector in turn takes charge of the Committee agenda and chairs all the meetings for a three-month period, promoting legislative and political decisions and brokering compromises between the member sectors. Decisions in the Committee are taken by vote.
