The Nominations Committee of Council makes recommendations to the Minister about people to be appointed to Council. The committee is established under section 10 of the ANU Act.
The Nominations Committee convened on two occasions in 2019. In February 2019, the committee considered, inter alia, potential candidates to succeed Mr Graeme Samuel AC, who was due to retire from Council at the conclusion of his second four-year term on 31 July 2019. In November 2019, the committee also considered potential candidates to plan for the potential re-appointment or replacement of three of the seven ministerially appointed members, from 1 July 2020.
Council continued to maintain its Council and Committees Skills Register to assist the Nominations Committee with making recommendations to the Minister for appointments and re-appointments.
