The Advisory Board of Marine Energy Research Australia (MERA) provides broad-based advice and guidance to the MERA Management Team and the Centre’s Albany headquarters on all issues associated with the MERA missions of research and engagement.
Additional ex-officio members may be invited to join the Advisory Board as required over time.
The Advisory Board will meet twice a year, usually in April and November, via a combination of face-to-face (local meetings in Perth and Albany) and tele-conferencing / video-conferencing facilities. The previous meeting minutes, an agenda and an update report about research and engagement activities since the last meeting will be sent prior to each meeting, after review and approval by the Chair of the Advisory Board. Responsibility for keeping minutes of the Advisory Board meetings rests with MERA. On special occasion, the Advisory Board members may be invited to an extended face-to-face meeting in Western Australia.
