The representative council meets at least twice a year to advise the FCA Board on strategy and policy issues, particularly those affecting financial counsellors and the state/territory associations. The council is also responsible for electing the four financial counsellor directors to the board.

The representative council has 18 members:

  • 14 are voting members, made up of two representatives from each state and territory member association
  • four are non-voting members – FCA’s chair, FCA’s chief executive officer, another board member and a representative from the Northern Territory which does not have a professional association.
