Notice of 2019 Annual General Meeting and Call for Nominations of Directors
The 2019 Annual General Meeting (2019 AGM) for Women Sport Australia Inc. (WSA) will be held on Monday 23 September 2019, commencing at 6.30pm, Australian Eastern Daylight Time at Odgers Berndston (Level 8, 1 Collins St, Melbourne) and via webinar.
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.
Five positions are available for election by the members at the 2019 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 20 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.
To complement the existing skill set within the Board, skills are sought in the areas of advocacy, member engagement, database management, content creation, design and event logistics. Ideally nominees will also have a strong connection to the Australian sporting community and experience on committees or boards.
Nominations must be received by the Secretary by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5.00pm, Friday 16 August 2019.
If more than the required nominations for directors are received, a ballot will be conducted.
