The FTA operates throughout Australia and ensures regional representation through the operation of Technical and State Committees. The Committees provide a vehicle for members to advise management on the operation of the association and discuss technical industry issues.
State Committees usually meet monthly and are responsible for four key area’s:
- Being an ambassador in the State for FTA.
- Being the link where needed between local membership and Management/Board – where members either don’t know or are uncomfortable approaching the Board or Management, State Committee is the vehicle to advise what members would like to see, what’s not working etc.
- Help us to put on meaningful local events, predominantly the quarterly face to face function in each state. Via their local networks, assist in sourcing venues, speakers etc, but also advise on what is topical or of interest in their state at that time.
- Play a part in member growth and engagement by welcoming new members, addressing gaps in our offering to younger members and other groups of relevance both nationally and locally.
