RACQ’s Board has put much time and consideration into working through how it tackles the future as Queensland’s largest club. This includes how the board can best govern for the challenges ahead to continue to achieve success for our Club and our members into the future.
As outlined in the August issue of The Road Ahead, the Board proposed a number of changes to the constitution for that purpose, Increasing the say our members have in the election of Queensland-based directors to the board and ensuring that a majority of voices at the board table are drawn from across Queensland.
The board believes that this change will result in a more democratic and effective director election process, where a member’s vote counts across all of Queensland, resulting in a stronger board composition.
All proposed changes were discussed for members’ consideration and voted for at the recent RACQ 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) held on 23 November.
These changes will make RACQ better and stronger for our members, maintaining ‘the mind of a business and the heart of a club’.
