Member Consultative Committee

The Members Consultative Committee (MCC) harnesses Member knowledge and experience, and enhances communications between Members, the ATC and other stakeholders.

Members are one of the ATC’s key stakeholders and important contributors to the future of the ATC and its venues. A wide range of events, issues and investment decisions impact on the Member experience today and in the future, for this reason, the ATC are establishing a Members Consultative Committee (MCC) to harness Member knowledge and experience, and improve communication flow between Members, the ATC and other stakeholders.


The ATC have introduced a new Member Consultative Committee (MCC) which meets a minimum three times per year. The aim of the MCC is:

  • To create a diverse focus group of Members for qualitative research
  • To provide feedback on areas for improvement specifically relating to Member experience, engagement and satisfaction
  • To provide feedback on the ATC’s current and future plans that directly or indirectly impact Member experience, engagement and satisfaction



The MCC is comprised of:

  • EGM Member & Customer Experience – Jane Coles (Chair)
  • Membership Manager – Naomi Morgan-Jones
  • Corporate Affairs & Government Relations – Steve McMahon
  • 12 to 15 Australian Turf Club Members

  1. Financial 2021 Australian Turf Club Member
