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 (where not renominating).  The representation and skills the board is looking for include:
  • Arts Industry Representation
  • Legal Skills
  • Fundraising & Development Skills

What’s Involved

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.

Application & Election Process

Prospective new Board Members, who meet one or more of the vacancy criteria above, are required to submit an application comprising:

  • For youth aged 18 and above: A completed Youth Member Sign-Up Form + paid up membership
  • For individuals aged 27 and above: A completed NEXTGEN Member Sign-Up Form + paid up membership
