The ASC is in a period of healthy change. An important new step is the
previously announced intention that we will seek to have a part-time General
Manager to look after a range of externally-directed activities. 


The National Executive has been considering how the new appointment will
affect the roles and duties of key positions in the Association. 


The final contracts for the General manager and Executive Officer will
define their roles and duties so that all main players know their boundaries
within our evolving Association.


Just in time for the AGM, the National Executive has written a short duty
statement to guide the activities of the new President. The wording of the
following brief list of roles and duties is consistent with the
Constitution, which only loosely defines the President's role. 




1.	To provide leadership to the ASC, particularly in the framing of
policy by the National Council and National Executive.
2.	To chair meetings of the National Council and National Executive and
all general meetings of the ASC, wherever possible.
3.	To work with the General Manager, the Executive Officer, the
Secretary and other office holders in the framing of agendas for all
4.	To supervise the work of the General Manager and the Executive
Officer, and support them in the performance of their duties.
5.	To act as spokesperson for the ASC as required.
6.	To sign all agreements and contracts on behalf of the ASC.
