2RRR is a community radio station servicing the communities of the Ryde and Hunters Hill in Sydney that aims to provide a community information and cultural exchange facility through radio.

2RRR is a registered charity, and Cooperative, governed by a voluntary Board of Directors complemented by the non-Board role of Secretary. The Secretary’s role focuses on governance, and compliance, and makes a significant contribution to the workings of the station.

The Board of 2RRR is seeking Expressions of Interest from suitably qualified individuals for the role of Cooperative Secretary

It is customary that the Secretary be responsible for taking minutes at board meetings and for distributing the final copy of the minutes for approval at the subsequent board meeting. In addition, the Secretary is responsible for distributing agendas for the meetings and for managing the Board meeting “cycle” of reporting, meeting, and actioning relevant items from the minutes. Other duties include: 

  • handling of correspondence coming in to, and going out of, the Station if not covered by one of the Director portfolios or the Station Manager;
  • preparing Returns for submission to Fair Trading, APRA/AMCOS, CBAA, ABS and others.
