How to nominate

In accordance with the Committee for Perth Limited’s Constitution, the Committee is seeking nominations for two (2) positions of Director on its Board. This represents an opportunity for you, as a member organisation, to take an active part in the strategic direction of the Committee by nominating a candidate for the vacant positions and participating in a subsequent election should more nominations be received than positions vacant.

The successful candidates will be elected for a term of three years and will join the Chairman and two appointed directors to comprise a Board of nine.

There are two (2) current vacancies open to other members to nominate a person associated with their organisation to seek election as an Elected Director.

The current Board is comprised as follows:-

Having commissioned a review of Board skills and composition, the Committee is specifically seeking nominations from individuals who operate in large organisations that are current or recent CEO's. We are particularly interested in receiving nominations from candidates who have strong strategic capability; senior connections in government; who represent sectors that are dominant in the Perth economy; and those with a data/digital skill set.

The Committee for Perth’s 2019-2021 Strategic Plan seeks to ensure that we remain a relevant and sustainable organisation and to grow the membership base. The Board meets quarterly at which it reviews the performance of the organisation and provides guidance on issues such as thought-leadership, projects of high impact, organisational effectiveness and financial viability, together with assisting with the business development process.

If you feel that yourself, or a senior colleague, can add depth and strength to the Committee and the Board and thereby helping to grow the membership base, I encourage you to nominate for one of the positions. A nomination pack is below and should be emailed to the Committee by 5:00 pm, Friday 25 September 2020 Nominations received after the closing date and time will not be considered.

Any enquiries should be directed to Holly Fulker as the Returning Officer at the Committee for Perth on 9481 5699 or
