Become a voting member
Voting members can vote in Board elections and on significant matters like changes to the organisation's constitution.
All voting members are invited to the Annual General Meeting, held in November, where they can put questions to the Chair, Directors, CEO and senior staff.
All voting members receive an electronic copy of the Annual Report plus a short email briefing from the Chair after each Board meeting.
Any person with a current CHOICE Plus, CHOICE Online, CHOICE Magazine, CHOICE Computer, CHOICE Computer Plus (including digital options) or CHOICE Health Reader membership.
Corporate or organisational members of CHOICE are not eligible to become voting members.
There is no separate fee for voting membership but voting members must keep their CHOICE membership up to date.
Applications are considered by the CHOICE Board, which considers a range of factors including potential conflicts of interest. Applicants are informed of the outcome in writing.

Join the Board
Each year, all voting members are invited to nominate as a Director of the Board as long as they supply:
- endorsement from two other voting members
- a completed questionnaire on their qualifications and affiliations
- a 200-word biography.
Following that, a member can petition for a seat on the Board. All voting members receive information on candidates along with their voting ballots, and the results are declared at the AGM in November of each year.
