Board meeting postponed to next year

The ASAQS Board meeting that was scheduled for the 15th November 2017 has been postponed to the first quarter next year.

The reasons are as follows:-

  • The board has previously decided to schedule 3 board meetings per year. They have already met twice and if the board were to convene on the 15th of November (for the third and final time) the next board meeting would then need to be scheduled in June 2018, when during this meeting the next ASAQS president is elected.
  • Although of enormous benefit for our board and association, the 2 day strategy session at the beginning of the year has placed much pressure on the budgets allocated towards board meetings for the current financial year. There were large expenses associated with this board / strategy meeting.
  • As decided by the board, Head Office is currently developing a board induction “booklet” that describe in detail the requirements to serve as an ASAQS board member. We are also detailing and mapping all board governance policies and requirements. At the end of this complex project the consultant will need to meet with the board and present the policy documents for final input by the board. This will be done during the next third and final board meeting now scheduled to occur in the first quarter of 2018. The exact date of the meeting will be confirmed next year.

Both the President and the Executive Director apologise if any inconvenience is caused by the lateness of this cancellation notification. Should you have any concerns or would like to clarify any further aspects, you are welcome to call either the President or ED.
