ACS is run by its members for its members. The committees are made up of ACS members and staff members who are allocated to provide advice and support. We have a number of Committees who meet on a regular basis and set the overall direction of the Association, and decide on policy matters.

There are currently four committees who control the direction of ACS, these include:

  • Events Committee: The Events Committee meet to discuss plans for all ACS events. The Committee offers support, advice and guidance on our events, especially our annual Summit and plans the schedule of events for the forthcoming year.
  • Post Office Committee: The Post Office Committeee meet four times a year and deal specifically with matters relating to convenience stores and post office tie ups.
  • Government Relations and Campaigns Committee: The GRCC manages ACS’ political work. Meeting every six weeks, they debate the key issues and agree action to tackle them. Membership of the committee reflects the make up of ACS’ membership.
  • Audit Committee: The Audit Committee is responsible for monitoring risk and ACS legal and governance procedures. The Audit Committee can be contacted by members, staff or any member of the public if they are aware of issues regarding the governance and probity of ACS. The members of the audit committee are as follows:
    • Chris Mitchener
    • Catherine Nunn
    • Dan Quest
    • Simon Webster
