The CITMA Council

Council-charterThe business of CITMA is managed by our Council, whose members are elected for a two-year term at the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Council members may seek re-election at the AGM at the end of the two years if they wish. The President, the two Vice-Presidents and the Treasurer are elected from within members of the Council and the Council itself is responsible for keeping true accounts.
