If we are going to achieve a more representative board this year, you will need to cast your votes in both the election and the spill – download instructions here.
The election alone will not be enough! You have to vote for the Spill as well!
Let us explain why. At the AGM this year there will be four (4) clinical directors left on the board and two non-clinical directors, plus four new directors to be elected.
If we get two of ours elected and they get two of theirs, there will be 6 clinical to 4 non-clinical directors – the same clinical majority again!
We have to spill at least 3 of the clinical directors to achieve a more representative board, including the president.
It is the fate of these four remaining clinical directors that could change APS history. For them to change, the spill is essential.
Will APS members brave enough to take this step? The APS board has been dominated by the the clinical faction since 2001 and have fiercely protected their own higher rebate for 10 years – see Anthony Cichello’s email in 2011.
The motions will only be carried if the majority of the members present at the AGM vote in support of them. So, if you can’t attend the AGM please nominate Jenny Corran or Sophie Bibrowska as your proxy because they will be attending, and will vote for you.
