Board Call Out

WAYTCo is on the look out for new board members! We're seeking individuals with high-level skills, a passion for theatre and preparedness to fully commit to the role.

At the upcoming Annual General Meeting, to be held 29 April 2024, the WAYTCo membership will elect new board members and say goodbye to those who have completed their terms or are otherwise wrapping up their time in service to the Company.  The representative and skilled qualities the board is looking for this year:

  • Representative – Youth*
  • Representative – Theatre/Arts Industry
  • Representative – Community Member
  • Skilled – Accounting Skills
  • Skilled – Legal Skills
  • Skilled – Strategic Marketing
  • Skilled – Fundraising & Development

* candidates must be at least 18 years of age and no older than 26. Regarding the upper age limit for the Youth Representative role, candidates must be under 27 and due to remain under 27 until April 2025.

What’s Involved

Board meetings are held every six weeks on a Monday evening, 6pm start, and run for 1-2 hours. Board 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.
