CLANT: step up and get involved!

CLANT seeks expressions of interest from members to serve on our Committee.  The Committee currently meets monthly.  Besides being responsible for organising our biennial conference, the Committee deals with a broad range of policy and law reform issues, responds to requests for financial assistance to support a variety of causes and cases, is responsible for compliance by the Association with its statutory obligations, and organises occasional social activities.

CLANT’s committee members and office bearers are elected for a two year term by the members at a biennial General Meeting, but casual vacancies arise on the Committee from time to time, and the Committee is empowered under our Constitution to appoint replacements.  Recently, following the resignations of Madeleine Rowley and James Tierney from the Committee, we appointed Beth Morrisroe (CAALAS) and Isabella Maxwell-Williams (ODPP) as Committee members.

Fortunately, we currently have a full complement of hard-working and enthusiastic Committee members, from both sides of the bar table, and all sectors of the profession.

Nevertheless, we expect that vacancies will continue to arise, and the Committee invites members who would be willing to join the Committee to register your interest with us by contacting a Committee member.
