Materials Australia National Body
Materials Australia is a national organisation with branches in each Australian State. It is governed by a National Council.
The National Council is comprised of: four (4) elected members, a nominated member from each State Branch, a President-elect, an Immediate Past President, an Honorary Secretary, an Honorary Treasurer and Chairpersons from the National Committees (Awards, Education, Events, Membership and Publications).
Each year, the National Council appoints the National Executive (the President, who acts as Chair, President-elect, Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer). This Executive is responsible for directing, developing, monitoring and controlling all the activities of the Institute, and in so doing, acting for Council between Council meetings.
