The Community Media Training Organisation (CMTO), a Registered Training Organisation delivering accredited and pathways training to community broadcasters around Australia is now seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from people across Australia who are suitable and willing to be considered for appointment to our Board of Directors.

The current CMTO Board is comprised of people nominated by peak representative bodies across the community broadcasting sector. The board is seeking to enhance the effectiveness and relevance of its strategic capacity by ensuring that it continues to be informed by diverse and inclusive perspectives on developments in community media. It hopes to build this capacity by adding up to two additional independent Directors to the current board of five.

This is a unique opportunity to engage with the community broadcasting and Vocational Education and Training (VET) sectors at a high level. If you share the CMTO passion for our mission and purpose and can bring diverse perspectives to bear on how we carry out our work, please review the Board of Directors EOI pack available here.

Should you have any inquiries regarding the EOI and its process please direct them to Christina Spurgeon via

All EOI submissions must be sent to accompanied with a CV by 5 pm AEST, Monday, 2 December 2019.
