The Board of the CRC Association met in Melbourne on Friday 16 November. Members will be interested in several outcomes:
- A review of the Association’s Strategic Plan will be held in March 2019. Alternative directors will be invited to join the Board in assessing the current plan and determining the CRC Association’s strategy in relation to government and opposition policies.
- Preliminary results of the Members’ survey were discussed.
- It was decided to work towards a reinvigorated diversity policy and action plan by the 2019 conference.
- The CRC Association will prepare a Budget submission arguing for more resources for the Program. The submission will be used as a key advocacy document for consultation with the government and opposition in the lead-up to the election. It was decided that the “unfunded” nature of the CRC-P program should be the basis of the Budget submission.
