RACGP president faces critical vote to avoid going unpaid

Confusion during last year's AGM apparently resulted in the remuneration package for the college's directors being voted down

The RACGP’s 14 board directors  including the college president face working without pay for the next five months unless grassroots members vote in favour of a new $1.2 million remuneration package at an extraordinary general meeting on Tuesday.

The move has been forced on the college after an apparent mix-up last year when members voted against the board’s decision to pay directors on the basis of a financial year rather than the 12 months between annual general meetings (AGMs).
