About the Role

3MBS is a community broadcasting station operating within the terms of a licence granted by the Australian Communications & Media Authority (ACMA) to the Music Broadcasting Society of Victoria, a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee, to serve the fine music community of Melbourne.

The company is managed by a Board of Directors, which employs a General Manager with responsibility for day-to-day operations.  It is mainly volunteer-based but also employs five full time and eight part time staff. 3MBS funding is derived from the community it serves, from individual subscribers and donors, organisations, grants and sponsors relevant to the 3MBS community.

The Board is seeking someone with CPA/CA qualifications to take on the role of Treasurer (non-renumerated). Not-for-profit experience will be highly regarded.

The person will be required to become a member of the Music Broadcasting Society and may be co-opted to the Board to fill this role until the next Annual General Meeting, when they may stand for election.  Board members are currently elected for a two-year term and may serve no more than three terms.

In both cases, it is a requirement for the person to be a member of the Music Broadcasting Society of Victoria Limited, a company limited by guarantee. The annual fee is $22 ($20 + $2 GST) and the liability for each member is limited to $20.

The Board is currently made up of ten (10) members, and under the Constitution, can have up to 12 Directors.

The Treasurer has the responsibility of keeping the organisational finances on track to reach defined goals and not putting the organisation or themselves at financial risk. The Treasurer will be expected to:

  • safeguard the assets of the organisation

  • oversee the preparation of the Board’s financial strategy
