Committee

MEDANZ is fully volunteer run.  The day to day running of the Association is managed by a committee of members and their details are listed below.  Other members also regularly contribute to the organisation via submissions to Newsletters, the website or on sub-committee (e.g. for organising Festival).

A new committee is elected annually in April at the MEDANZ Annual General Meeting (AGM).
