The Committee

The Committee includes the officer bearers listed in the table on our contact page (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary), each state and territory coordinator, and the mentor coordinator.

Committee members were first chosen at our inaugural meeting in May 2008 by the founding BEECHAC Inc members. It is proposed that elections be held at the Annual General Meeting in June 2009 and thereafter at each national conference, and that all members will be able to vote in person or online.

The Committee meets at least four times a year with one meeting being at the same time as the Annual General Meeting.
