Committees and groups

The AES Board is supported by a number of Committees, membership and operational groups.


Board Standing and Strategic Advisory Committees

Each Advisory Committee has an advisory role to the AES Board and is chaired by at least one Board member. The Strategic Advisory Committees focus on the four strategic domains: Cultural Capacity, Pathway, Relationships and Vitality – as per the AES Strategic Plan 2019–2022.

The committees advise on:

  • current strategy, e.g. existing Domain priorities, matters referred by the Board
  • emergent strategy, e.g. bring new/nascent/emerging issues to the Board’s attention
  • operational strategy, e.g. oversee and provide governance for discrete projects these undertaken by project teams whose membership would draw upon the broader AES membership.

All Committee members will have a commitment to, and responsibility for, the following elements of good governance:

  • Accountability – taking shared responsibility for the operations and impact of the Committee
  • Transparency – ensuring that information about the Committee’s activities is accessible to the AES Board
  • Disclosure – being open to scrutiny and dealing effectively with potential conflicts of interest
  • Independence – maintaining a collective decision making culture and independence from outside direction or interests
