Fragile X Association of Australia is calling for nominations for new Board members to be voted on to the Board at our Annual General Meeting on Sunday 9 October, 2016.
It is important that we have a strong Association to provide a national voice, ensure appropriate services and advocate on behalf of the Fragile X community.
We’re seeking Board members whose motivation, skills and contacts will extend our capacity to deliver supports to our community in line with our strategic plan.
There will be several changes to the Board this year. Robyn Iredale’s term as President is due to expire at the AGM and she will step down. Robyn says “I have found being on the Board to be very gratifying but after 13 years I feel that it is time to open up space for new Board members.”
Bruce Donald, our Treasurer, is also finishing his current term. This is Bruce’s second time on the Board and he has played an important role as Treasurer and advisor on many matters.
Treasurer role and General Board Members
We’re seeking a Board member who will take on the role of Treasurer and several other Board members who have a diverse range of skills in areas such as business/finance, fundraising, marketing, social media. Above all, we are seeking Board members who have a strong commitment to serving and supporting the Fragile X community.
Judith Lenart (Sydney), Cathy Love (Melbourne), Graham Hook and Nyleta McRae (Brisbane) will continue to serve on the Board. We would love to have Board members located in other states/territories.
