The FBAA has been undergoing a ‘modernisation’ process over the past several months, with the aim of making it easier for members to become involved in the decision-making process, reveals CEO, Peter White.
“The FBAA is representing broker members and they are entitled to be given as much opportunity as possible to participate,” he says.
During a recent special meeting held to review its constitution, FBAA members for the first time participated by phone and over the internet, as well as in person.
White says the meeting allowed members to beat the ‘tyranny of distance’.
“It was effectively attended by many members positioned in various states and, due to the flexibility now offered, there were far more attendees than usual. In essence, the association is seeking as much input as possible from members and this meeting shows it is achievable.”
He says the association will be outlining other aspects of the modernisation process at its upcoming annual conference on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
