At the recent Annual General Meeting, held 20 April 2023, the WAYTCo membership elected ONE new board member (education sector representative Max Leech), and saw THREE board members complete their terms (Cecilia Cornu, Marie Molloy & Simone Detourbet). This and a recently conducted skills need audit has led to the identification of two Casual Skills Vacancies:
- Human Resource/People & Culture Skills
- Fundraising & Development Skills
Board meetings are held every six weeks on a Wednesday evening, 6pm start, and run for approximately ONE hour. Elected members are expected to attend all meetings and to put forward a formal apology if they absolutely cannot make a meeting.
A Board Reading Pack is e-issued to board members approximately 7 days (and no fewer than 5 days) prior to scheduled meetings. Board Members are expected to digest all essential reading material and refer to financial reports prior to each and every meeting. If training in financial report reading is required, we offer this once a year and can also support young board members with additional governance training opportunities.
Board Executive positions (Chair, Deputy Chair, Treasurer and Secretary) are determined at the first Board Meeting following the AGM. Additional time, skills and commitment is required of these position-holders.
