The WAC Executive

The Executive is the main governing body of WAC between meetings of Council. It administers the affairs of WAC in accordance with its statutes, the decisions and policy of the Assembly, and the decisions of Council. The Executive has full power to take any decisions which may be necessary or desirable in the interests of WAC between meetings of the Council. However, the Executive is expected wherever possible to take into consideration the views of Council and should, where appropriate, attempt to ascertain these views before making decisions. Meetings of the Executive shall take place at such times and places as it shall decide, and are expected to be at least annually.

The Members of the Executive are:
a] the Officers of WAC;
b] three members of the Council, from different electoral regions and, if possible, from Regions other than those of the elected officers, elected by the Council to sit on the Executive;
c] one Indigenous member elected by the Indigenous Group of the Council;
d] one Student representative.
