Applications are open until the 20th December 2017.
We are looking for applicants who have:

- a strong interest and deep commitment to volunteering in the past. Please show us what you have done to demonstrate your commitment to becoming a board director and serving your community.
- a skill set/experience/network/team behaviours that can be contributed at a board level. Tell us why you would be a strong board director candidate.
- a commitment to give 110% to the program and alumni – be available to complete all aspects of the program and become a great ambassador for us. Are you a good learner, open to new ideas and people and implement what you learn?
The Information Night was very well attended last night (see photo above) and we look forward to a number of high quality applications.
Good luck. We can’t wait to launch the 2018 program!
