2020 AGM

Notice of 2020 Annual General Meeting and Call for Nominations of Directors

The 2020 Annual General Meeting (2020 AGM) for Women Sport Australia Inc. (WSA) will be held on Wednesday 30 September 2020, commencing at 6.00pm, 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 2020 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, including attending (in person or via webinar) a board meeting every 6 weeks. 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 member engagement, website CMS, eNewsletter management and marketing/design. Ideally nominees will also have a strong connection to the Australian sporting community.

Nominations must be received by the Secretary by email to secretary@womensportaustralia.com.au  by 5.00pm, Wednesday 5 August 2020.

If more than the required nominations for directors are received, a ballot will be conducted. 

Financial Members:

Only financial members may nominate and second candidates and attend and vote at the Annual General Meeting. If you need assistance with identifying a nominator or seconder, please contact the secretary.

Information on joining WSA is available here.
