Elections for Queensland State Council elections opens Wednesday 6 March 2019

AHRI members are represented by State Councils comprising elected certified level members in all eight states and territories. Councillors act as a voice for the members and advise the AHRI Board, through the Council of State Presidents, on issues affecting the development of the profession and members within its state or territory.

State councils are the primary form of member representation. It is essential that state councils be made up of members who are representative of the AHRI membership base.

The functions of state councillors are to:

  • Advise the Board, through the Council State Representatives, on issues affecting the development of the profession and members within its state or territory.
  • Foster development of human resources professional knowledge and skills of the members and enhance the profile of the profession within its state or territory.
  • Promote the objectives of AHRI as set out in clause 1 of the Constitution
  • Uphold and enforce the Constitution's rules, regulations and By-laws

Members who are certified HR practitioners (CPHR or FCPHR or CAHR FCAHR), members who are working towards certification status, or LIFEFellows are eligible to take position as a state councillor.

Elections for new state councillors are held between February and March each year, with the newly elected councillors assuming their roles effective 1 July of the same year.

Following the recent nominations to the AHRI State Council, the candidates are now seeking your vote in the Queensland elections. We encourage you to exercise your vote by completing an online ballot paper.
