This is an excellent opportunity to gain practical Board level experience and develop your own skill set, while contributing to Guiding at its highest level.
The Appointed Girl Guides Australia (GGA) Director for Tasmania is a member of both the GGA and Girl Guides Tasmania (GGT) Boards for three years, helping to govern each organisation and ensure good two-way communication between them.
Each Board sets the strategic direction for that organisation, taking into account financial sustainability and risk management issues, and oversees how Management delivers the strategic plan.
A knowledge of Guiding at all levels, the Australian Guide Program (AGP) and Australian Learning Qualification Program (ALQP), risk management and corporate governance would be beneficial. An appreciation and understanding of the requirements and responsibilities of sitting on the national board of a federated, not-for-profit organisation would be advantageous, although skill development support is available where needed.
Attendance at GGA Board meetings (six per year, mostly in Sydney or via Zoom) and GGT Board meetings either face to face (5 per year, alternating between Hobart and Launceston) or via Zoom (5 per year) is an integral part of this role, together with online meetings for any subcommittee of GGA to which you are appointed.
A full position description and Application Form are available below and on our website, and suitably qualified Members are encouraged to apply.
