ANCOLD depends on volunteers to lead the Association by serving as the Executive and Office Bearers. The Executive is responsible for the effective management of ANCOLD. It sets strategy, develops programs for members’ benefit, manages the day to day running of ANCOLD and oversees the development of our guidelines.

In accordance with Rule 18 of the constitution of ANCOLD Incorporated, elections will be held for the positions of Deputy Chair, Director and Treasurer at the 2023 Annual General Meeting on Friday 27th October 2023.

These volunteer positions are excellent opportunities to contribute to your association and the Australian dam industry. The current Executive urges members to consider which of their colleagues would be excellent candidates for the available positions and to make nominations.

The term of each Executive is two years and Executive members are expected to attend and participate in at least three face to face meetings annually along with regular conference calls. They also participate on or lead task groups and/or committees.
