Management Committees

Alumni Friends of The University of Queensland Inc. is an incorporated association under the Queensland Associations Incorporation Act. The association is managed, on a voluntary basis, by members elected from within its membership at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).  The AGM (also referred to as Alumni Day) is generally held on the third Saturday in May. The AGM is a social event with an invited speaker, the presentation of the Annual Report, and the election of the Office-Bearers and the Executive Committee.

The day-to-day administration of the association is managed by the Office-Bearers, who ensure that the decisions and policies decided upon by the Executive Committee are appropriately implemented.
