RACGP Governance Model
An RACGP extraordinary general meeting (EGM) will be held on 30 May 2017.
This meeting marks a number of firsts for the RACGP and its members.
It is the first time in more than 50 years that our core governance structure has been reviewed and a modernised proposal put forward for consideration. Having a skills-based Board and separating clinical/profession decisions from business decisions is a tried and true model advocated by leading governance experts.
It is also the first time we have held a meeting where voting will be solely conducted electronically.
In the lead up to the EGM on 30 May we will make sure you have all the information you need on the proposed model, what exactly would change, what it means for members, how the model would work in practice, and of course how to make sure your details are up-to-date to ensure you can vote and how the vote will work.
All of that information and more will be kept here and also on a dedicated space in shareGP where you can ask questions and post comments.
Dr Tim Koh
RACGP Chair of Council
