Welcome - and MC members' theme responsibilities - please read and create your content

Welcome to our first Management Committee meeting 

The agenda for this meeting is demanding of our time and thought. There are many policy areas and activities that we have to reach agreement about, and move into implementation. There are also some significant structural changes that we want to do.

The MC meeting needs to accommodate:

a) Presentation of ideas from theme leaders

b) Exploration of ideas in the threaded conversation

c) Expression of decision that the theme leader has requested before the end of this week and preferable by all MC members for each theme

 Di and Ross will be tracking the discussions throughout the week to make sure that each theme is developed and that links are made when they can be.

Monday week, (Sept 10) Di will sort through the conversations and present the decisions that have been made as formal MC decisions where we have a majority of MC members (a quorum) making the decision for any particular theme.

If we have unresolved issues, we will take them into teleconferences with the people involved using Learning Times or Skype.

OK, so here are all our items of business and the people responsible for opening themes. If each person has more items of business please feel free to add another agenda item, but the following require you to create an agenda item and introduction as Ross and Di have explained. I also see that some people have already begun - thanks:


1. Special Interest Group policies

2. The ISA panel and Barcelona

3. Indigenous interests

4. Mentors


Marg O

1. Progress on October edition of journal

2. New look and capacity for journal

3. Progress with Monograph (including new budget line/business plan for it)

4. Next edition of newsletter and progress with it


Donna and Marg F:

1. ALARA name change action plan



1. Livery brief for designer

2. Marketing and membership brainstorm



1. Completion of the MOU from the SA conference

2. National affiliates (from SA conference, pre-existing and future connections)

3. The next national conference (ACT or Tasi?)

4. Regional activities



1. The “visionary directions” project

2. The World Congress

3. International affiliates and networks

4. International Working Group and Executive Officer



1. The minutes etc from the AGM

2. The minutes from the last Management Committee meeting

3. The role of Secretary



1. Budget review of the SA conference budgeting and financial management process

2. Restructuring ALARA’s budget so it serves the members better (discretionary lines of budget for each Working Group Coordinator)

3. Financial planning and targets

4. Reporting to Exec and liaising with Donna



1. World Congress policy including the question of seeding fund, policy direction

2. Groningen Update




1. New structure of the Management Committee: getting familiar with roles and policy and the people carrying out the roles and policy

2. The Advisory Group - who, what, when etc

3. ALARA’s Council of Treasures - policy and nominations for life members

4. New action plan format


There will be some items that the person responsible will be less informed about than others, but this is the hand over discussion time so we need to add information when needed to help new people into their roles and fill in the gaps of communication.

I look forward to our week together.
