Council is the governing body of the ACT. It is ultimately responsible for the stewardship and management of the ACT’s affairs and accountable to the members. Day-to-day management is delegated to the Chief Executive and, through him to the Executive team.
Council consists of up to nine elected members who serve a three-year term, four Officers – President, Deputy President, Vice President and Immediate Past President – and the Chief Executive. The normal succession route for Officers is Vice President, Deputy President, President and finally, Immediate Past President with each post lasting one year.
Our Royal Charter
In 2013 ACT was awarded a Royal Charter in recognition of our commitment to supporting the treasury profession.
The grant of new Charters these days is comparatively rare; reserved for eminent professional bodies or charities which have a solid record of achievement and are financially sound. And in the case of professional bodies they should represent a field of activity which is unique and not covered by other professional bodies.
So whilst we are proud to join the ranks of the 900 or so Chartered bodies that have come into existence since the 13th century, we are even prouder to do so in the knowledge that we are the only one dedicated to setting the standard against which corporate treasury can be measured.
If you'd like to know more about our Charter you can find more information on our Charter page.
Membership Development Forum
This forum consists of members and non-members of the ACT, and is tasked with representing the membership to us and acting both as a sounding board for new ideas, as well as approving policy changes and ensuring that the best interests of the Membership body are represented throughout the ACT.
Statutory and Professional Guidance
The ACT requires all of its members to abide by our Ethical Code and Disciplinary Rules.
