Information on the 2017 CBAA AGM and board elections.

Nominations for the CBAA Board closed at 5.00pm AEDT on Friday, 13 October 2017.

In 2017, the President and two ordinary Board member vacancies are to be filled, as well as the Women's Representative role. 

Nominations are particularly encouraged from people (to fill skills or diversity gaps):

  • From a regional or rural location
  • From an Indigenous background
  • From a non-English speaking background
  • With accountancy qualifications
  • With legal qualifications
  • With experience with dynamics of fundraising

To be eligible, you must be a person nominated by two Permanent Community Broadcasting Members or Temporary Community Broadcasting Members of the CBAA.

Nominees are expected to have a commitment to the ideals of community broadcasting, a solid knowledge of and interest in the development of community broadcasting as a national sector and commit to representing the interests of the whole sector – not just their station or special interest group.

How to nominate             

Nominations will be accepted on the receipt of fully completed forms, including two (2) Voting Member nominators. Forms and further information regarding the positions is available in the Information Pack available to download below.

Nominees for all positions will need to complete the appropriate form (either Nomination for the CBAA Board or Nomination for the Women's Representative). This includes two (2) Voting Member nominators and written profile (no more than 150 words). A headshot should also be provided along with the scanned completed form via email no later than 5.00pm AEDT on Friday, 13 October 2017.

Nominations close 28 days before the AGM. This gives voting members a greater opportunity to review and familiarise themselves with the candidates prior to the election and to make a more informed choice on voting day.

Candidates for election to the CBAA Board will have an opportunity to briefly (two minutes only) address members at the 2017 CBAA AGM, to be held on 10 November 2017 on the Gold Coast as part of the 2017 CBAA Conference program.
