REQUIREMENTS OF A BOARD MEMBER
Project Didi has a small, collaborative Board that takes an “all pitch in” approach. Our Board is more involved in the day-to-day management of the organisation than a typical Board.
The Board meets every 1-2 months (remotely and in-person). The minimum requirements for the Treasurer role are outlined below. Depending on interest/availability, the Treasurer can choose to participate in the wider strategic planning and organisational management.
As a Project Didi Board Member you will be required to:
- Commit to the role for at least 1 year.
- Commit approximately 2 days of work a month (1-2 hours a week). You may choose how you distribute these hours over the month.
- Attend 3 hour Board meetings quarterly, including the AGM, and present on Project Didi’s current financial status. These can be attended remotely.
- Respond to emails requiring Board input within 48 hours (these emails are fortnightly at most).
- Be aware of, disclose and refrain from any conflict of interest.
- Assist with fundraising and act as a spokesperson for Project Didi, where needed.
APPLY: Please send your CV, along with a short cover letter (maximum a page), to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note if you are shortlisted we will complete a reference check and require you to undertake a Police Check.
QUESTIONS: Please contact our current Treasurer, Clare, at the email above or on 0474 891 726.
We are strengthened by the diversity of our team at Project Didi Australia. We welcome applications from people of all cultures, backgrounds and experiences, and are committed to providing reasonable adjustments so that all team members are able to fulfill the essential functions of their roles.
