2023 RANZCP Board – Casual Vacancy, Elected Director
Call for nominations
Professor Neeraj Gill, who has been an integral part of our Board since June 2020, has decided to step down from his role as Board Director. A casual vacancy opportunity has therefore arisen on the RANZCP Board for a Director. The term for this position will be from 16 October 2023 until the conclusion of the 2024 RANZCP AGM. The Fellow appointed to this position shall be eligible for re-election in accordance with the RANZCP Constitution.
The position will be appointed by the Board in accordance with the RANZCP Constitution and approved Procedure. The portfolio allocated to the Elected Director will be a decision of the President, following discussions with the current Board Directors.
The Elected Director is one of eight Board Director positions on the RANZCP Board. The Board is the governing and policy making body of the RANZCP. Each member of the Board is a Director of the Company.
As part of our ongoing efforts to enhance the diversity and inclusivity of our Board, this year significant changes have been made to the Elected Director selection criteria. Notably, members are no longer required to hold Fellowship for a minimum of 3 years to be eligible to apply for a Board position.
Another change to the Elected Director Position Description includes the Completion of the Australian Institute of Company Directors Course or the Institute of Directors New Zealand Course or comparable qualification to be eligible to nominate. The intent of this is to highlight the importance of holding appropriate skills and qualifications to join a Board, which is in line with best practice. To allow members the opportunity to meet this requirement for the future, this will come into effect for the 2024 Elected Director Elections. For the purposes of the 2023 Elected Director (Casual Vacancy) appointment, this will be considered as a desirable quality.
All nominations and supporting material must be received by the RANZCP by 5.00 pm AEST on Friday 22 September 2023.
