2018 PRIA Extraordinary General Meeting

NOMINATIONS and VOTING FOR NEW PRESIDENT AND DEPUTY PRESIDENT

PRIA’s Constitution requires the National President and Deputy President of the National Board to be re-elected every two-years. Current National President Jenny Muir and Deputy President Jacquie Ray has served their two-year term on the National Board and need to step down to make way for new leadership. As such, nominations for these roles are now open and voting will be required at a special EGM. The notification and information for this is detailed below.
