Call for Nominations for National Council 2023-25
2023 is an AMaGA election year
We are calling for nominations for National Council
Closing date: Tuesday 27 June 2023
The National Council provides the vital representative platform for leadership of AMaGA, and its members are the recognisable interface with the sector, on behalf of the hugely dispersed footprint of AMaGA's membership around the country.
Council members bring expertise and experience, source opinion, listen to needs, develop and implement policy, and undertake the strategic governance of the organisation.
Council needs representation from across the geographic spread of the country and covering the intellectual, practical, social and cultural diversity of disciplines and functions that make up the museums and galleries sector, as reflected in the AMaGA membership.
The Council consists of the positions of:
- Vice President
- 6 Ordinary Members
All positions are open for nomination.
Existing councillors must re-nominate.
The current Presidents of the various State/Territory Branches, or their designated representative, are automatically members of Council.
Council service is honorary, with Councillors meeting their own individual expenses to attend in-person meetings when possible. Other meetings and executive meetings take place via teleconference throughout the year.
A National Council Handbook is available. Many frequently asked questions are answered, and more information on the roles and responsibilities of each position is outlined.
If you would like to nominate someone, or get someone to nominate you, please complete the nomination form, and return it (with candidate endorsement) to the National Office by Tuesday 27 June 2023. Please note that the nominee, nominator and seconder all need to be current AMaGA members at the time of nomination, voting and election.
The election will be held at the AMaGA AGM, scheduled for week commencing Monday 25 September 2023, time/venue TBC.
