As a not-for-profit company, AMT is subject to the legal requirements of the Corporations Act (2001). The Association undergoes an annual company audit and must report to the Australian Securities and Investments Commission. Electronic copies of our Annual Report are available for download here.
AMT's rules and governance structure are firmly based on the principles of participatory democracy. We actively invite and encourage our membership to participate in and engage with decision-making and direction-setting.
There is currently 5 committees performing specialised functions within AMT's governance structure: Discipline, Finance, Education & Research, Ethics, and Strategic Planning & Marketing. The operation of these committees is governed by specific Terms of Reference which you can download below.
AMT's regional branches are managed by their own local Executive consisting of a Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer. All regional branches are accountable to the Board and required to regularly report on their activities via the Executive Officer. Details of the current regional executives are available here.
