Executive Committee

The executive committee is an elected representative body. Its members are all experienced professionals who have gained knowledge of hospice volunteer management, and are currently working in organisations that provide palliative care services. Committee work is an addition to their normal employment and requires attendance at a minimum of six meetings a year.

The committee is responsible for the management of the association, the maintaining and updating of the AVSM constitution, terms of reference, business and strategic planning. Minutes of all committee activity and meetings held are available in the Executive Committee Meetings section in the Members Area.
