Each Faculty has a capped number of elected Board members. Depending on the Faculty’s designation, elections are either:
Faculty Wide Elections operate within the entirety of the Faculty, where Board member positions (also known as ‘general members’) are elected from across the Faculty (the ‘Senate’ model).
Regional Representation Elections operate within designated regional electorates, and Board member positions are elected per electorate (the “House of Representatives’ model). Faculty electorate boundaries may reflect the old Medicare Local or Commonwealth electorate boundaries, whereas RACGP Rural for example, uses the state/territory Faculty borders as boundaries. The relevant electorate for voting members is determined by the preferred address held on the RACGP database.
The current electoral systems for each faculty are presented in the below table.
Regional Representation Election (based on the former Medicare Local boundaries)
