The BIC Council


The BIC Council is responsible for determining the direction of the association and dictates actions it deems necessary for BIC to undertake to achieve its ultimate goals. The Council membership is comprised as follows:

The Council is nominated at the Annual General Meeting, as are the positions of Chairman and Vice-Chairman. The Council also has the power to co-opt other persons to be a member of the Council though co-opted members do not have an entitlement to vote at a Council meeting.

The BIC Council formally meets three (3) times per year generally in March, July and October.
BIC Members have full access to submit queries or issues to any member of the BIC Council. In addition, BIC members are able to attend BIC Council meetings as an observer.

Before the commencement of each BIC Council meeting, there are three (3) groups that meet to share information, discuss current issues effecting operators and suppliers in the bus and coach industry. These groups are the Bus and Coach Associations Group, Suppliers Group and the Executive Directors Group. BIC Members are welcome to contribute and attend the Bus and Coach Associations Group and Suppliers Group.
