2017/2018 Board Nominations

Things are getting exciting in SOT-land. We have almost finished our teaching series for the year and have the grand finale, our Annual Convention in Sydney, creeping up on us. The Board are working hard to ensure the weekend with Jesper Dahl is one that is relevant and inspiring. Make sure you book your spot ASAP.

The Annual Convention also signals that it is AGM time. At last year's AGM, the membership voted to change the structure of how we elect SOTOA Board members. It was decided that;
"A member wishing to be nominated to the Board of Directors, shall deposit at the registered office of the Company by 5:00 pm not less than 28 days before the date of the nominated AGM, for distribution with the notification of the AGM, a seconded nomination of their intent to hold office of the Company that will be voted upon at the AGM."

This new business was suggested to show transparency of the election process and give members the benefit to make a considered opinion on who will represent them as directors of the board. All members and re-election of current board members intending to stand for office shall indicate their intent in writing by notifying the secretary 28 days prior to the AGM so it can be included with the Notice Paper of the AGM. Board terms last two years and are staggered to ensure continuity of information.
At this year’s AGM, being held on Saturday 18 November in Sydney the current Board members who are up for re-election are Dr Tori Keevy and Dr Sarah Mannes, plus the yearly re-election of the current President, Dr Jo Sexton.

Being a part of the Board means you hold the privilege of helping to direct and shape the incredible community of SOTOA and help to nurture the further growth of SOT in Australia.
