Royal Life Saving Society – Australia is seeking to appoint two independent directors to join its board to contribute to the effective and strategic governance of the national organisation.
Royal Life Saving is a leading national peak body for drowning prevention and water safety, with more than 125 years of service to the Australian community. It facilitates efforts to reduce drowning and increase swimming, water safety and lifesaving skills across the Australian community. We actively support the Australian Water Safety Strategy 2030.
A not-for-profit organisation, Royal Life Saving works with a network of State and Territory Member Organisations, and through partnerships with Government, the aquatic industry and other water safety related bodies.
The board consists of eight directors appointed by State and Territory members, and up to three directors appointed by the board. It recently elected an independent director (Dr Mitch Hartman) to the position of Chair/President.
We are committed to evidence and stakeholder informed advocacy, campaigns, and research. We are focused on cross sectoral leadership to create and influence change.
We are working to strengthen the impact of partnerships with government at all levels, other like-minded bodies, the private sector, and our members.
We are seeking directors with strong alignment to these approaches.

Experience and/or qualifications in corporate governance will also be highly valued.
