2021 Writers Victoria Board Call Out

Date: Tue March 9 2021 12:00 am to Tue March 23 2021 9:59 am

Writers Victoria is guided by a volunteer Board, the majority of which is elected from and by our membership.

Four (4) positions on the Board will be declared vacant at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be held via Zoom on Wednesday 21 April 2021.

To nominate yourself for a position on the Board, please download and complete a Board Nomination Form (either as a PDF or word doc) and return it via email to: members@writersvictoria.org.au

Please email your nomination form in Word or PDF format, from the email address we have on your membership record.

If you experience any difficulty uploading the Board Nomination Form into an email, we can accept your nomination details in text form in the body of an email or, alternatively, contact Memberships on (03) 9094 7855.

Members with financial, IT, and membership and fundraising expertise are particularly encouraged to apply.

Before nominating, please read the Board Positions Guidelines.

Please note the following when nominating yourself for the Writers Victoria Board:

  • Only people who have been financial members of Writers Victoria for more than 30 business days prior to the AGM may nominate as candidates (5 March 2021).
  • You do not need to ask another member to nominate you.
  • Please enclose a short biography (up to 150 words) and a brief statement to support your nomination (including why you wish to join the Board and what you think you could contribute).
  • Nominations must be received (not postmarked) no later than 10am on Monday 22 March 2021.
During the AGM, you will have 90 seconds to speak in support of your nomination. If you are unable to attend the AGM, a statement can be read on your behalf.

If successful, you will be expected to: attend six evening Committee meetings per year; attend other ad hoc meetings and planning days; join at least one subcommittee; contribute time and expertise in between meetings (approximately 6 hours per month); and act as an ambassador for Writers Victoria.
