History of the Aboriginal Executive Position and Aboriginal Observers to Executive
At Annual Conference in 1997 it was passed that Aboriginal members should have a designated position on Executive. Council had earlier determined that Federation should take steps to ensure that Aboriginal members were guaranteed representation within the 3 key decision making bodies of Federation.
By 2005 another position was created to give more Aboriginal teachers exposure to the inner workings of Federation and to foster a greater understanding and experience for our members. This position was Observer to Executive.
Observers attend the Executive meetings but may not vote. You can put your name forward to be considered in the position for the duration of one school term. There are 4 meetings per term.
Aboriginal Members Roll Councillors and Aboriginal representation at Federation Annual Conference
As mentioned above, following Annual Conference in 1997 positions were specifically created for Aboriginal people in three divisions of Federation .These were one position on Executive, five Aboriginal Members Roll Council members and ten delegates to Annual Conference. These opportunities have proved to be of great benefit to our members.
