RMSANZ Annual General Meeting
Wednesday 23 November 2022, 6pm (AEDT)

The 2022 Annual General Meeting of Rehabilitation Medicine Society of Australia and New Zealand Ltd (RMSANZ) (the AGM) will be held, via zoom, on 23 November 2022 (registration details to follow). Nominations are invited for candidates to be appointed as Directors at the AGM and also for the position of President-Elect (and Director, if not already an elected Director) of RMSANZ.

RMSANZ currently has ten (10) directors. The terms of four (4) of those Directors, Drs Michael Chou, Lee Laycock, David Murphy and Richard Seeman, expire at the AGM in accordance with RMSANZ’s constitution. Accordingly, there will be four (4) vacant Director positions to be filled at the AGM. Drs Chou and Laycock have completed their permitted terms under RMSANZ’s constitution and therefore will not be standing for re-election. Each of Drs Murphy and Seeman, being eligible, has indicated his intention to stand for re-election as a Director at the AGM. Nominations are invited from other candidates to fill the four vacant Director positions at the AGM. If two or less nominations are received from other candidates Drs Murphy and Seeman will be declared elected at the AGM, together with any other nominee(s). If more than two other nominations are received a poll will be held at the AGM for the four vacant Director positions.

To be eligible for election as a Director or President-Elect a person must be an Ordinary Member of RMSANZ as defined in clause 3.1.1(a) and 4.4.4(b) of RMSANZ’s constitution.

Nominations for Directors and/or President Elect must be submitted on the prescribed form which can be downloaded using the links below. Nominations must be signed by two (2) other Ordinary Members and contain a consent to act signed by the person nominated, and must be left with, or posted or transmitted to reach the Administrative  Officer of RMSANZ no later than 5.00 pm on Wednesday, 5 October 2022.

The initial term of office of a person elected as a Director at the AGM is two (2) years.
