IPAA Queensland Inc is a not-for-profit, member-based association incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 (Qld). Our Association Model Rules (the Rules) set out IPAA Queensland’s governance arrangements. The principal governing body is the Council whose members are elected by members of the association.
The functions and powers of the Council are set out in Clause 21 of the Rules and are broadly defined as having the general control and management of the administration of the affairs, property and funds of IPAA Queensland. Overall, the Council provides strategic direction and oversight of activities and reports annually to association members on IPAA Queensland’s performance. They also serve as active champions of the association and its value proposition.
Council members, who must be individual members of the association, are elected by the association’s members for a two-year term but are eligible to re-nominate for another term. Council also includes three office bearers – President, Secretary and Treasurer.
Current members of the IPAA Queensland Council were elected for the period July 2020 through June 2021, with the exception of the President whose term began in January 2020. Collectively, the Council represents a mix of ‘old’ and new members who bring a diverse range of capabilities, experience, perspectives and networks, and who represent the broad public purpose community.
Meet our Council.
Ian Stewart AO was elected President for a two-year term, January 2020 through December 2021. As President, he is the public face of IPAA Queensland and actively champions its role and purpose.
He also leads the Advisory Council to ensure it successfully carries out its corporate governance responsibilities for the benefit of the association.
Ian has been a personal member of IPAA Queensland for over 20 years, received the award of IPAA National Fellow in 2011, and was a member of the inaugural Advisory Council created in 2016 to guide the re-establishment of IPAA in Queensland.
