Nominations are now open for the following committee positions, up for election at the 2019 AGM on Sunday 7th July:

  • Secretary

  • Between 4 – 6 other committee members

Secretary and Treasurer roles are ideally held for two consecutive one-year terms. General committee members can choose to stand for a period of either one or two terms.

All committee roles are open to SLIANZ Ordinary or Honorary members who have paid their membership fees for the current year.

Committee members will be expected to be available for:

  • a monthly 2-hour videoconference committee meeting
  • one weekend a year for a face-to-face meeting / committee induction (usually held in August)
  • at least 1-2 hours a week to fulfill the obligations of the role

The costs of attending face-to-face meetings will be covered.

Serving on the committee is a great way to contribute to the profession. In recognition of your contribution, as a committee member you will be awarded 6 PD points per year.
