SPA Members Invited to Nominate for the SPA Board

3 September 2018

Suicide Prevention Australia (SPA) is seeking nominations from SPA Members for the position of Elected Director on the SPA Board.

Four organisational Member Elected Director positions become vacant at the 2018 AGM. The current terms of office of the following Directors will expire at the AGM. Each is eligible for re-election and has indicated their intention to stand for election for a further term:

  • Stan Piperoglou
  • Christopher John
  • Jacinta Hawgood.

Director Alan Woodward completes his third term of office at the AGM and so is ineligible for election.

The Board particularly encourages nominations from candidates with lived experience or a regional or rural background. Candidates are asked in their candidate statement to demonstrate their experience relevant to contributing to the long-term success of SPA.

The Board has resolved that two of the Elected Directors will be elected for a two year rather than a three-year term. This will be determined by ballot in the absence of sufficient volunteers.

Nominees should be either a Member of the Company or a Representative of a Member of the Company. Candidates are asked to complete the attached Nomination form and forward the form to The Secretary, SPA by one of the three methods detailed in the Nomination form.

The deadline for nominations for all positions is Monday 2 October 2018 at 5.00pm.
