As a general rule, a person should not be a member of more than two committees simultaneously.
The Management Committee of the Australian Branch has adopted guidelines for Australian membership of committees. A sub-committee of the Management Committee, comprising the President, Vice President, and the Director(s) of Studies, will consider the expressions of interest received, and make recommendations to the Management Committee. If there are more expressions of interest than positions available on a committee, the sub-committee and Management Committee will need to decide on which nominations to forward. There is also the possibility of nominating a person as an alternate member. The final selection of members is in the hands of the Executive Council of the ILA on the advice of the international Director of Studies (who consults with the officers of the committee in question). The Executive Council meets twice a year, normally in May and November.
