Profile of the Committee
The committee will only have ONE employee (10% of committee) member who may not serve as an Officer of the club and who will have upgraded from Staff to full membership.

The committee will only have TWO members employed in an airfield business (20%) and they may not serve as an Officer of the club. No business may have more than ONE member on the committee.

Employee and Business members of the committee will be required to vacate meetings during topics for which they have a conflict of interest.

Airfield businesses are defined as activities that take place on the airfield in which the UFC has a direct financial relationship, by either charging or paying for services beyond the definition of employee or member.

During the AGM voting, the employee member with the most votes will be elected if an employee vacancy exists. If no employee vacancy exists, no employee member nomination will be accepted for that year.

During the AGM voting, the two business members with the most votes will be elected if sufficient vacancies exist. If only one business member vacancy exists, the business member with the most votes will be elected. If no business vacancy exists, no business member nomination will be accepted for that year.
