Role of the State Management Committee
The QRI Lifestyle State Management Committee oversees all operations, and has general control of the management and administration of all affairs, property and funds of the organisation.

The Committee is comprised of between eight to ten members who are elected every two years at the Annual General Meeting of the Association.

Executive: consists of a President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer
General Committee: consists of minimum of 4 and maximum of 6 members

The State Management Committee serves a term of two years, until the next election when members can re-stand for election. The upcoming term is from November 2020 until the Annual General Meeting and Election in 2022.

Meetings of the State Management Committee are held bi-monthly. Most meetings will be held at the QRI Lifestyle State Office in Brisbane, while one or two meetings each year will be held regionally.

Members of the State Management Committee are required to attend various corporate and social events, regional branch tours, and other meetings of the association in an official capacity. Normally only the executive members are required to deliver speeches, presentations and reports at such events, however from time to time the general committee members may also be required to perform such duties.

State Management Committee members are required to be positive advocates of the organisation at all times and must act responsibly, diligently and with integrity.

Travel and accommodation expenses where required are paid for by the organisation and any legitimate and approved out of pocket expenses incurred in the course of QRI Lifestyle engagement, will be reimbursed.

Being part of the QRI Lifestyle State Management Committee is a very rewarding and fulfilling experience and the organisation encourages any member with relevant skills and experience to nominate for the 2020-2022 term.
