Requirements and Process

Phase One: Nominations

OPENS: 9.00AM AEST TUESDAY 14 JUNE 2016


CLOSES: 5.00PM AEST FRIDAY 29 JULY 2016

The nomination will be submitted to the Returning Officer to check each nominee's eligibility. Each nominee will receive an automated email confirming receipt of their form. This is to allow appropriate eligibility checks to be completed. Members are required to submit an online nomination form to assist in confirming their eligibility.

Your proposer and seconder will be contacted by the Returning Officer to confirm their agreement to support your nomination.

If the Returning Officer deems that the nominee is eligible to be listed, he/she will forward the nomination form, along with a statement of approval to Engineers Australia. If the nominee is deemed to be ineligible, the Returning Officer will notify the nominee direct of the outcome.

Candidates are responsible for the accuracy and integrity of any information supplied by them. Engineers Australia and the External Service Provider are entitled to rely upon any information in relation to, or supplied by, a Candidate.

Without limitation, Engineers Australia and the External Service Provider are entitled to rely upon any personal information or biographical details supplied by a Candidate but may, at the discretion of the Returning Officer, or the Authorised Representative, require a Candidate to provide certified copies of qualification certificates and otherwise check or query any information provided by the Candidate.

When lodging your candidate submission you are required to declare that you give permission for your candidate statement and photo to be published on the Engineers Australia web site for election purposes, and that your contact details and membership status may be used for election purposes and for ongoing governance and operational purposes as appropriate to the role.

Board Directors nominations will be subject to separate assessment by the Board Directors Nominations Committee, chaired by the Hon Trish White.

Eligible Candidate Confirmation

Following the close of nominations on 29 July, eligible Division Committee and College Board candidates will be contacted by the Returning Officer to advise whether the relevant election is to be held and which vacancies will be filled uncontested.

Board Directors candidates will be contacted by the chair of the Board Directors Nominations Committee by 26 August, advising of selection for the initial shortlist.

Phase Two: Elections - Division Committee and College Boards

OPENS: 9.00AM AEST MONDAY 5 SEPTEMBER 2016


CLOSES: 5.00PM AEST FRIDAY 30 SEPTEMBER 2016

One week before voting opens on Division Committee, College Board and National Congress elections, candidate statements and photos will be placed on the Engineers Australia Elections web site to give visibility to the elections and so that voters know who the candidates are.

For positions where no election is required and where the candidates are automatically elected, candidate statements and photos will also be uploaded to the web site to profile the elected office bearers.

The voting process for Division Committee, College Board and National Congress elections will be administered exclusively by BoardRoom Pty Limited.

Voting instructions will be emailed to the preferred email address of all eligible members or posted to those eligible members who do not have a valid email address.

Elections outcomes

Division Committee, College Board and National Congress election outcomes are provided directly to the Returning Officer by BoardRoom Pty Limited.
