Could you be a Director on the Girl Guides NSW & ACT Board?
Directors are elected to the Board of Girl Guides NSW & ACT, and contribute to the strategic direction, legal and financial accountabilities and oversight of our organisation.
Girl Guides NSW & ACT are calling for nominations for two (2) vacant Board Director positions.
If you’ve been an adult Member of Girl Guides NSW & ACT for at least three years, you’re eligible to be nominated. We also actively encourage our Olave-aged Members (aged 18–30) to nominate themselves or others to the Board.
You may be interested in the sorts of things the Board have taken action on over the last six months or so. Firstly, there are several sub committees that the Board oversees. Directors consider their recommendations on potential risks to our Organisation ensuring our governance requirements are met; consider finance, property and membership management issues; and awards, policies and procedures.
Secondly, the Board also appoint Region Managers and State Managers. The Board oversees the Strategic Plan, of which the CEO is responsible for implementing. Regular reporting informs the Directors of progress and the Board is responsible for ensuring that the CEO is appropriately resourced and is on target to meet the requirements of the Strategic Plan, while ensuring that it is still appropriate to our needs.
The role of Director of any Board is not to be taken lightly. It carries a serious responsibility to bring skills to the table; to keep interested in items that are relevant to the Organisation; to attend meetings fully prepared, having read and understood the papers; and be ready, willing and able to actively participate in producing outcomes that are always in the best interests of the Organisation.
If you have the ability to actively participate as a Director for Girl Guides NSW & ACT, please consider nomination for yourself or others.
