Quidditch Australia Strategic Plan 2017-2019

Quidditch Australia has grown rapidly over the last 5 years, with our most recent national tournament hosting 19 teams from 5 states. Our national team, the Australian Dropbears, became the first team to defeat the United States and take out the 2016 IQA Quidditch World Cup. With close to 600 players, and rapidly rising, QAI is looking to create a strategic plan to guide the nation through this expansion.

Quidditch Australia are looking for community consultation on a variety of topics to help mold the vision and direction of the strategic plan for the next 3 years.

Expression of Interest for Appointed Board Positions for Quidditch Australia

Quidditch Australia like to open expressions of interest (EOIs) for appointment to the board of directors.

According to the Constitution, up to two directors may be appointed by the board. Appointed directors are chosen to provide input on to the board in areas where the current board directors feel it is lacking. As such, successful directors will be chosen based on the attributes, skills and experiences that they can offer to the board and the wider Quidditch community.

It should be noted that the current board need not appoint directors from those submitting EOIs, nor need they appoint directors at all. However, these EOIs will provide the board with some insights as to who is interested and what they can bring to the table.

With this, we would like to open EOIs for these appointed board positions. EOIs will be accepted until the 8th of April. Applicants may send in a one page cover letter and a two page resume. Applicants should address their skills and experiences within their EOIs, as well as any board portfolios they might wish to hold.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any member of the board.

Please email all EOI’s to
