Election FAQs

Got a question about your eligibility or the nomination process? These FAQs should help. If not, email us.

Who can nominate for the MBEC and Divisional Representative positions?

All QBCC licensed builders and trade contractors are considered 'voting members' and eligible to nominate. To be eligible for a Divisional Representative position, your membership must be listed within that Division. You don't have to be the licence holder to nominate - as long as you are an authorised representative of a voting member, you can put up your hand.

Who can nominate for Board positions?

Only MBEC and Divisional Representatives are eligible to nominate for office bearing positions, which include the Board and Housing & Construction Sector Committee Chairs.

Who can nominate for Committee and subcommittee positions?

All current members are eligible to nominate for policy committees and subcommittees. MBEC members will be considered when filling positions on the Housing & Construction Sector Committees.

Who can nominate for Divisional and Branch Committees of Management positions?

All current members are eligible to nominate for the Committee of Management relevant to their registered Division or Branch.

What is a voting member?

All QBCC licensed builders and trade contractors are considered voting members and may nominate for a position on the MBEC.

My membership subscription is overdue, can I still nominate?

Unfortunately no. Membership subscriptions must be up-to-date in order to be eligible.

I have a licence, but I'm not a builder or trade contractor, can I still nominate?

If you are looking to nominate for the MBEC or Divisional Representative positions, unfortunately no. To be eligible for these positions, your membership subscription must be as a licensed builder or trade contractor. You can speak with our Membership team to have this adjusted in order to nominate. However, you can nominate for a position on one of our policy committees or subcommittees. All members are eligible to fill these positions.

I am already a committee member, will I remain on the committee?

Not necessarily. As part of the Master Builders Constitution, all office bearing positions and committee positions must be elected every three years. Even as a current committee member, you’ll need to nominate for a position for the new period.

How much time do I need to commit?

You can give as much time and effort as required and will depend on the position you hold – however, as a minimum, you will need to commit to attending a number of meetings each year and getting involved in specific policy discussions as required.

Do I need to be the licence holder to nominate?

No, you don't have to be the licence holder to nominate - as long as you are an authorised representative of a voting member, you can put up your hand. Members can only nominate one authorised representative for positions on the MBEC.
