 Election of Board Members

The NSW Chapter Board consists of 10 members. For 2019, four vacant positions are available to be filled. Continuing Board members are Andrew Cooper, Mark Woodrow, Kieran McCann, Suzanne Houweling, Patrick Armstrong and Phillipa Davies (on maternity leave).

To qualify for the NSW Chapter Board, nominees must be financial members in good standing and members of the NSW Chapter. The main criteria for seeking to nominate to serve on the Board are an ability and willingness to commit time to running the Chapter and attending monthly meetings and events. Membership of the NSW Chapter Board of the IABC is voluntary and there is no remuneration/salary paid. The responsibilities of Board members follow those outlined in the NSW Dept of Fair Trading Model Rules for Incorporated Associations.

All Board Members are expected to lead in the organisation of at least one Chapter speaker event for the year. Members who wish to be active but do not have the time to commit to the Board are invited to join a Chapter sub-committee. The Board also elects a Public Officer, who will be a nominated person drawn from the elected Board.

If you are interested in nominating for a Board vacancy, please refer to the Nomination Rules and complete the Nomination Form – IABC NSW Board 2019 Nomination Rules Form. The final deadline for nominations is 5pm 26 November 2018.
