Late applications will not be accepted.

Why Attend the AGM

As the only apolitical non-profit run for members, by members working to actively foster a transnational community of Australian and Chinese youth, attendance at the AGM is the perfect opportunity for members to participate in and be informed of the full scope of ACYA’s achievements over the past year, as well as the strategic direction to be charted in the year to come.

The principal aims of the AGM are:

  • To provide full operating, management, and financial reports of the outgoing National Executive Committee’s undertakings to members.
  • To approve proposed changes to the ACYA Constitution and governance structure
  • To elect the members of the incoming National Executive Committee.

A full agenda will be distributed to all registered attendees prior to the commencement of the AGM.

ACYA National Executive Elections

A key function of the AGM is to elect a new executive. All current ACYA National Executive Committee members, National Directors, and Chapter Presidents are eligible to vote. All registered attendees who are Eligible Voting Members will be sent applicant and voting information.

Elected Positions (voted for at the AGM)

All positions begin on Monday the 4th of March 2024.

How to Apply to the National Committee

All applications for the above elected positions should be sent by email, with a CV and a cover letter, to the ACYA Returning Officer elections@acya.org.au by 11.59 PM CST 1st March 2024.

Applicants are welcome and indeed encouraged to apply for multiple roles. Please state your order of preference among the roles you have applied for. However successful nominees cannot hold more than one position in ACYA.

As ACYA continues to grow beyond its 7000+ membership base spread across chapters in Australia and China, it will look to the passion, ability and enthusiasm of its executives to lead the only youth-administered NGO in Australia-China affairs that is run by members, for members.

We strongly encourage applicants from all backgrounds to apply and look forward to seeing you at the AGM.
