Our Committee

The Association is managed by an Executive Committee of eight nominated and endorsed members, and comprises the President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Research Officer and up to five other members.

In addition to the Annual General Meeting and Annual Reunion Lunch conducted on the Saturday prior to ANZAC Day each year, the Committee generally meets in February and October.

Issues requiring decisions between meetings are managed on an informal basis by way of email and telephone communications amongst the Committee.

The Constitution of the Association was amended at the 2008 AGM to allow descendants of original Service members of the Regiment to become members of the Association and to assume office bearing positions.

Since 2008, the Association has been managed by the descendants of original Service members.
