Re reading (not my strong point) one article says  8 members - 4 Sate feds 2 a-league club 1 PFA and 1 chairman.

Other 4 state feds 2 x clubs (No APFCA or AAFC) 1 x PFA 1 x FFA 

Oh dear are we any clearer on the future.

FIFA press release

FIFA’s Bureau of the Council today established a Congress Review Working Group (CRWG) for Football Federation Australia (FFA). This follows the recommendation made by the FIFA Member Associations Committee on 4 December 2017 and the recent visit to Sydney by a joint FIFA-AFC delegation.

The main objective of the CRWG is to propose a new composition of the FFA Congress to ensure a broader and more balanced representation of stakeholders in line with the requirements of the FIFA Statutes, in particular art. 15 (j).

The CRWG will be chaired by an independent person and comprise representatives of the Football Federation Australia Board, the member federations, the Australian Professional Football Clubs Association (APFCA) and Professional Footballers Australia (PFA). The CRWG will be based on terms of reference elaborated by FIFA and shall seek input from relevant stakeholders.

The CRWG will conclude its mandate and submit its proposal to FIFA and the AFC by 31 July 2018. The proposal will be subsequently submitted for adoption to an FFA Special General Meeting by no later than 7 September 2018.

Independent chair to lead eight-member panel that aims to fix FFA
  •  
  • An independent chairperson will lead an eight-member panel that has been tasked by FIFA with fixing the broken governance structures of Football Federation Australia.

    FIFA finally delivered its terms of reference for the ‘‘congress review working group’’ yesterday afternoon, several weeks after its self-imposed deadline.

     

    The working group will include four representatives of the state federations, two from the A-League clubs, one from Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) and one FFA board member.

    They will decide who is the chairperson. FIFA, however, has instructed that the person must have a strong track record in legal and governance issues, preferably in sport, and experience in mediation and negotiation.

    If the group cannot settle on a chairperson, FIFA will make the appointment. It will be the chair’s responsibility to ensure the working group fulfils its mandate: to determine a new structure for the FFA congress that includes a ‘‘broader and more balanced’’ representation of stakeholders, and bring the governing body in line with FIFA’s statutes.

    The group will take into account other issues, including the governance model of the A-League, with clubs keen to take over the running of the ailing competition from FFA, as well as the composition and independence of the FFA board. Throughout, it will seek input from the Association of Australian Football Clubs – the newly formed representative body of NPL clubs – and Women’s Onside, a lobby group seeking to increase women’s involvement in the governance of the sport.

    The A-League clubs, FFA, state federations and the PFA have been locked in a bitter power struggle for the past 18 months over what a reformed congress should look like, prompting the intervention from FIFA and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC).

    The working group has been ordered to deliver its proposal to FIFA and the AFC by July 31, which must be submitted by September 7 at a special general FFA meeting.

    "FFA supports expansion of the congress to reflect the evolution of football in Australia and balance the interests of each part of the game," FFA chairman Steven Lowy said.

    "This should include significant movement towards gender equality at all levels of governance.

    "FFA also welcomes the reference to governance of the A-League because we want to work with the clubs and other stakeholders on a new ownership and operating model for the league that will benefit the whole of the game."

    Bonita Mersiades. She’s the real deal, but has no chance whatsoever to be independent chair.

    This Why "Seven of the nine state federations voted in favour, but swing state Victoria stuck to its guns in opposition. As expected, the A-League clubs and NSW state federation also voted against the motion for FFA’s preferred congress model, one which is bitterly opposed by the players’ union.

    Yep. My fear is independent chair will be impossible to find, so FIFA appointment (ie, Lowy influence).

    Four Four Two still saying FFA have no seat on the restructure working group?

    “As previously outlined, FIFA's eight-seat 'Working Group' will consist of:

    Four seats for member federations

    Two seats for club representatives

    One seat for a Professional Footballer's Association (PFA) representative

    One seat for an Independent Chairperson.”
