Calling all expressions of interest!
With the 2017 co-directors on the move it is now time to say goodbye and usher in a new team for 2018! Expressions of interest are officially open and we welcome anyone who is dedicated, passionate and eager to get the ball rolling for 2018 to nominate themselves.
In 2017, our co-directors, alongside a team of members and volunteers alike participated in and successfully ran the following projects/events:
- Petition to support our kangaroos
- Prevent Plastic Pollution workshops, film screening and trivia night
- Monthly stalls at USC Market Days
- Fossil Free USC petition and actions
- #StopAdani Sunshine Coast actions
- Several tree plants and beach cleans
And the list goes on! Without a doubt our 2017 team have left behind some big shoes to fill but we’re feeling up to the challenge.
What do you need to know?
USC Eco will be governed by a Board of Directors of not less than three (3) members and not more than seven (7) members elected at the annual general meeting. The officers of the Board of Directors will be referred to as Co-Directors and will nominate to act in the role of Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary on a rotational basis throughout the year.
Co-Directors are expected to meet independently of the general body to plan meetings and events. In case of a vacation of office, the group will elect a replacement at the next general meeting.
All you need to provide is your name, a few sentences on why you’d like to join and what you think you could bring to the role. We also ask that you confirm you’ll be studying and/or committed until this time next year. Voting will open on the 14th of April after the closing of nominations, it will continue electronically until April 26th. On friday the 27th of April we invite all members to attend the weekly meeting to meet the new board of co-directors for 2018!
Nominations close: Friday April the 13th
Happy nominating and enjoy the well deserved Easter Break!
