CIfA Governance: Advisory Council

Advisory Council

The Advisory Council has up to 40 members, 20 of which are elected by the membership and up to 20 filled by representatives from each individual special interest or area group.

Advisory Council represents the interests of the membership and offers advice to the Board of Directors on policy, strategy and potentially controversial decisions.

Elected positions are for a three-year period with the option of standing for a further three-year term. Nominated representatives from Groups are for a one-year period. The Advisory Council usually meets six times a year, digitally for two hours and can have special meetings for specific topics, and will invite members of the Board of Directors to attend. Meeting minutes are available on the members section of the website.
