Quidditch Australian Board of Directors Call for Nominations

Quidditch Australia is making a call for nominations for its board of directors as well as a call for motions for special resolutions for the AGM.

The term of appointment is two years. Collectively the seven directors are responsible for the good governance of Quidditch Australia – establishing policy, maintaining the association’s finances and other duties necessary for running quidditch in Australia. After their election, the directors of the board will then be able to delegate amongst themselves specific portfolios. Current examples of portfolios include ‘Media & Marketing’, ‘Treasury’, and ‘Gameplay’ although this will be at the discretion of the newly elected board.

To nominate yourself for election please fill out this form, ensuring it is:

  • in writing using the prescribed form,
  • certified by the nominee,
  • signed by an authorised representative from two (2) member states or clubs
  • accompanied by a 1-2 page candidate statement
  • sent to secretary@quidditch.org.au by no later than the 2nd November

If the number of nominations received for the board is equal to the number of vacancies to be filled or if there are insufficient nominations received to fill all vacancies on the board, then those nominated shall be declared elected only if approved by the majority of members entitled to vote.

Merryn Christian, Alise Fox, and Matthew Ingram will all remain on the board until 2018. There will be four vacancies on the board up for election at the AGM.
