  • have a desire to develop their leadership and Board directorship skills to be able to give back to their community.
  • have some experience as a volunteer, committee or board member.
  • come from different work industries, backgrounds and have diverse interests.
  • are committed to securing a Board or Committee position within the aged care and community sector in the same year as completing the program (this will be the responsibility of the participant, not the program).
