IRSA has 2 executive committee representatives on APSCVIR
These are nominated by IRSA to represent the best interests of IR in Australia and New Zealand as well as within the Asia Pacific region. The nominees must be members in good standing with APSCVIR.
The IRSA APSCVIR representatives shall consist of:
1) President of IRSA^
2) Representative from the other country that the president resides in*
^The president may elect to nominate a representative should he/she decide to decline the position on the APSCVIR EC.
*Should there be no availability of a representative from the other country then the IRSA executive may decide to appoint another representative from either Australia or New Zealand.
It is expected that at least 1 of the 2 representatives will attend each APSCVIR executive committee meeting (typically 2 per year).
IRSA agrees to fund economy return flights to each APSCVIR EC meeting for 1 attendee and accommodation to the value of AUD$300 per night for the duration of the meeting. The 2 representatives will determine whom shall attend. Should the representatives receive funding from other sources then funding from IRSA will not be applicable. There will be funding available for a maximum of 2 meetings per year. Should additional meeting(s) be required funding will be at the discretion of the IRSA executive.
