The 2018 Annual General Meeting (2018 AGM) for Women Sport Australia Inc. (WSA) will be held on Wednesday 19 September 2018, commencing at 7:00pm, Australian Eastern Daylight Time.  

Director Positions

The Board (which is the management committee) of WSA can comprise up to 8 directors (who are the management committee members) elected by the members of WSA and up to three independent directors elected by the Board.

Three positions are available for election by the members at the 2018 AGM.

All candidates must be:

  1. either a financial member of WSA or nominated by a financial member of WSA, and
  2. seconded by a financial member of WSA.

Please note, the WSA Board is a hands on operational Board and directors are expected to commit at least 10-12 hours per month on WSA business. Directors will be asked to also participate in one or more portfolio responsibilities.

Nominations must be in the attached form and accompanied by a brief (no more than one page) biography of the skills and experience of the nominating candidate.

As a national board, we embrace diversity because we know that when people from different backgrounds, geographical locations, levels of experience, and different points of view work together then we can achieve our core purpose of equality for women in sport.

We are seeking people who have experience and skills in the areas of advocacy, stakeholder and member engagement, and social media strategies and execution.
