Hospitality NT Structure

The Hospitality NT's progress is managed by a Board which consists of 20 representatives from across the Territory, from which an Executive Committee of 5 is elected. All elections are conducted by the Australian Electoral Commission. Constitutionally, the Board is required to meet a minimum of once a year and the Executive at least once every quarter.


On the 24th March 2020, the Australian Electoral Commission determined that all industrial elections will cease and re-run later in the year due to the COVID19 impacts. The Australian Electoral Commission contacted the Association in October 2020 and conducted the election.

Nominations were called for the position - Representative to the National Accommodation Division (1). This position is elected by the Accommodation division members. Nominations opened 26/10/2020. Nominations closed 9.00am ACST 09/11/2020.

The result has been determined and a Post-Election report is available upon request by emailing admin@hospitalitynt.com.au
