About AITPM

AITPM

The Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management Incorporated (AITPM) provides a central point of reference for practitioners in traffic and transport planning and management. Members of the Institute are linked primarily by a common vocational interest rather than by similar academic qualifications alone.

Traffic Planning and Management is an integrated activity involving traffic management and operations, transport planning, economics, freight, road safety, public transport, and non-motorised transport modes.

The AITPM network is extensive, with its underlying strength being its own membership. The Institute started in 1966 and now has over 850 members and corporate members across Australia and New Zealand.

We have five state branches: Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

The membership is evenly spread across all age categories and continues to grow each month. As such the AITPM is regarded as the peak traffic and transport body for practitioners in Australia.

AITPM Vision

To provide leadership in traffic and transport by contributing to the development and management of a transport system that benefits all Australians.

New Constitution Discussion Paper

AITPM is a 50-year old organisation and was incorporated in 1993 under the Associations Incorporation Act of NSW.

Since the constitution was last updated in 2008, AITPM has undergone significant growth with membership now over 850, financial reserves of $1.1m and the employment or contracting of professional staff.

In response to this, the National Council is now seeking to undertake a review and rewrite of the constitution. The purpose of this is to update current governance structures and the constitution to:

  • bring it in line with modern governance practice,
  • enable the Institute to better deliver its strategic objectives,
  • ensure that voluntary participation in governance is as efficient, time-managed and rewarding as possible, and
  • remove any ambiguities and address any omissions in the existing constitution.

We have prepared an AITPM Constitution Discussion Paper which outlines the AITPM constitution review project including the reasons for the review, the process and timeline and a summary of the proposed changes that will be included in the new constitution.

Members are invited to submit any comments or questions on the proposed changes outlined in this document by 12 May 2017 to Kathy Nguyen, Manager – Client Services, Associations Forum at kathy@associations.net.au or phone 02 9904 8200.
