In the lead up to the 2015 API Annual General Meeting, CEO Mike Zissler has been hard at work with his “Open Mike” sessions, meeting with the members of each API division to detail the actions taken by the executive since the 2014 AGM.
The sessions have also given Mr Zissler the opportunity to explain in more detail the proposed vision, structure and motion that will be presented at the 2015 AGM, taking place Thursday, May 28 in Canberra.
Mr Zissler said the executive team has developed a proposed conceptual framework and organisational structure which members can vote on at the 2015 AGM.
“This campaign is all about the members. We have spent months listening to our members and we want them to know we are putting their suggestions first,” Mr Zissler said.
The focus on outcomes that are of value to members are shown in the proposed conceptual framework:
“This proposed framework highlights the importance of our members to the organisation. We are also proposing changes to the organisational structure, which allows the API to become more efficient,” Mr Zissler said.
The proposed organisational structure is expected to clarify all roles within the organisation and will allow the API to become a more efficient and auditable organisation.
The online voting process is now open and Mr Zissler encourages all eligible members to cast their vote and have their say about the proposed motions.
“The online voting process will close on May 25, at 4pm, however members attending the AGM who have not already voted will still be able to place their votes on the day,” Mr Zissler said.
