Each year in conjunction with an annual conference/symposium the Association’s Annual General Meeting and General Meeting is held for members. This is where members get to hear first hand what their elected board of Executives and Executive Officer have achieved over the previous twelve months. The meetings are formal and financial and an Annual Association activity reports are tabled. At the AGM all Executive members are stood down and paid members of the Association vote in Executive names, then vote on President, Vice President and Treasurer for the coming 12 months.

At the same meeting the R & D Committee stand down and members vote for a new group for the next twelve months. All who stand down are eligible for re-election and are often re-elected without change.

APFA has a Constitution and Proxy’s are made available for non attending members.
