Why would I want to join an AITD divisional council?

AITD exists for - and because of - its members so your ideas can add real value to the organisation and it’s a fantastic way to get more from your membership. You will have the opportunity to broaden your network and increase your profile within the learning and development community, as well as benefit from discounts on AITD courses and events. Once you have been a divisional council member for twelve consecutive months, you are also eligible to nominate yourself for election to the AITD board of directors.

Can I join a divisional council if I live in a regional or country area?

Divisional Council meetings and most AITD events take place in capital cities, where the bulk of AITD’s members are located. However, councils also endeavour to support events in regional areas. There are opportunities for regional members of divisional councils; however, please be aware your involvement in divisional council activity may be limited and your access to meetings may need to occur via telephone, webinar or other virtual means (e.g. Skype/FaceTime).


How much time do I need to commit to being a divisional council member?

All councils are made up of volunteers who give up their time to attend council meetings and participate in events. The success of councils depends on the commitment and reliability of its members.The divisional council year runs from 1 September 2018 to 31 August 2019. During this period, council members are expected to commit to attending regular (usually monthly) council meetings, participating in local events (approximately every six to eight weeks), and contributing to other council responsibilities. This may mean volunteering approximately 5-6 hours a month to council activities.
