Decision making

At the Australian Bush Adventure Therapy Forum (South Australia, Aug 2007) those present unanimously agreed on a specific decision-making structure for AABAT, as follows:

  • Any person with a professional interest in the field or in AABAT is able to become a member of the association.
  • Any member may raise questions, interests or concerns or pose the need for a BAT community decision via their regional representative.
  • For community-wide decisions, each regional representative will facilitate a conversation of members within their region until agreement is reached. The response is then fed back to the AABAT committee, who make a final decision, based on consensus, facilitated by the Chair.
