About the Role
The Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA) is a national not-for-profit organisation whose mission is to increase the understanding and practical implementation of Earth centred law, governance and ethics (or ‘Earth jurisprudence’) in Australia. AELA works to build long-term systemic change, so that human societies can shift from human-centred to Earth-centred governance. Our vision is to create human societies that live within their ecological limits, respect the rights of nature and enjoy productive, sustainable economies that nurture the health of the wider Earth community.
AELA is volunteer-run and operated, with no paid staff at this time. The AELA Board currently comprises five Board members, including the AELA Convenor.Please go to https://www.earthlaws.org.au for more information about AELA and its work.
We are looking for a volunteer Treasurer with:
• Well-developed financial management skills, and a good knowledge of bookkeeping and accounting practices.
• Experience in (or ability to rapidly acquire knowledge of) assisting with creating program budgets and budget acquittals for grant funding.
• Working knowledge of (or ability to rapidly acquire knowledge of) the AELA Constitution and applicable legislation, including the Corporations Act.
• Willingness to become an AELA member and demonstrate commitment to the aims, objectives and vision of AELA.
Please note that AELA does not have an office space, so its volunteers and Board members can be based anywhere. The AELA Convenor is based in Brisbane, and AELA has a part-time voluntary bookkeeper, based in Sydney.
Regular meetings with the AELA team, as well as monthly Board meetings, are held remotely using Zoom. The AGM and annual strategy meetings are held in Brisbane/Qld, but those unable to attend in person can join in using Zoom.
