The Governing Council
The members of the Council must be present or past members of the cinema industry and are elected for a twelve month term at each Annual General Meeting of the Fund which is usually held in May of each year. The Rules of the Fund provide for up to 12 sitting Councillors. Immediately following the AGM, the elected Councillors meet to elect from amongst themselves, a President and Vice-President who hold office for the ensuing twelve months. Each section of the industry is represented on the Council, viz; Exhibitors, Film Distributors, Cinema Managers, Equipment Supplies and Associates and former members of the industry (retired).
Are Councillors Paid?
No! All members of the Council give of their time in an honorary capacity. Many have given years of service to matters concerning the welfare of members of the cinema industry and their families. Two former Councillors each served in excess of 50 years and more recently, another retired after 40 years of service.
Under the direction of the Honorary Secretary who ensures that the Councils directives are carried out, the office of the Fund is run by a paid administrator. The office is best contacted via email or telephone.
