We run a number of consultative committees made up of expert industry professionals. This helps us ensure we remain firmly connected to industry and are able to respond to issues arising in the sector. Our committees are specifically designed to ensure we meet the diverse needs of our Members across a broad range of functions. Participation in committees is strongly encouraged and is a great way to help shape the industry and grow your leadership skills.

A charter governs each committee and stipulates the roles and responsibilities of various committee positions, as well as the duties of API staff in supporting our committees. It also outlines the committee terms and regular election cycles.

We hold periodic nominations which are open to all Members to sit on our committees, and we actively invite you to participate. Committee Members are chosen due to their suitability in meeting a range of criteria. If you would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you.
