The Redcliffe Aero Club is listed as a Not-For-Profit Entity under the Income Tax Act. As such, all RAC profits are used to maintain and update it’s facilities and assets.
Redcliffe Aero Club’s operating purpose is to be:
- A social club for General Aviation (GA) owners, pilots, trainees and enthusiasts;
- An entity which promotes general aviation and flying in the wider Moreton Bay community;
- A professional training organisation for members only;
- A provider of aircraft hire and charter services to members and the general public; and
- A not-for-profit entity which ensures the overall benefits accruing to the Club are utilised for and in the best interests of the membership and the community.
Given the large size of our operation, the organisation follows best practice management in that the Board appointed, full time Chief Executive Officer runs the aviation and business side of the organisation, and is a key adviser to the Board on the social and community side.
The Board sets the annual objectives for the organisation including the financial and other delegations of the CEO. At each monthly board meeting a review is conducted of the financial and other objectives as reported by the CEO. Once each year (usually in November) the organisation hold’s an Annual General Meeting (AGM). Notification of this AGM is provided by a posted written letter to each financial Member at that time and propagated on our website in compliance with ASIC requirements.
Minutes of monthly board meetings are not available as speculative discussions about current and future commercial issues are often discussed in confidence. Similarly the organisation- Business Plan, Capital Plans, Human Resource Management Plan, Remuneration Policy, Business Management Manual have been developed, but are not publicly available due to their commercial in confidence nature.
At the AGM both the President and Treasurer present their own reports on the previous year’s operations, as well as the audited Annual Financial reports. The meeting is open to questions from the attending Members. Members are of course also most welcome to discuss ideas and questions at any time with the CEO or baord personnel. Member input is often encouraged through the website and the organisation’s Airchat magazine, particularly on core issues.
Member input is always welcome / encouraged and is most easily directed via email.
