Industry Policy Council

The role of the Industry Policy Council is to develop the industry policy position for the association and for the interests of members.

The members of the Industry Policy Council have a key role in bringing forward the industry policy positions from their various divisions or affiliated associations for broader consultation and development through the Industry Policy Council. The Industry Policy Council is formed by nominations from each of VACC's Industry Divisions. Terms for the Council are for two years and Members may be re-nominated by their VACC Industry Divisions, if they wish to seek more than one term. 

The Chairman of the Council is led by the VACC President who is also the Chair of the Executive Board. The Industry Policy Council meets four times each year.
