I’m pleased to advise that your Board has recently committed to broaden its skill base and increase its diversity.
Nomination for a position on the Board currently requires only financial membership of IPWEA however the future success of the organisation relies on Directors with skills in the areas of governance, strategy, risk and finance as well as a deep understanding of the work of its members.
The composition of the Board should also embrace gender, age, cultural, regional, professional and sector diversity to reflect the breadth of our membership and to ensure that a range of views inform its decision-making.
Ultimately, the composition of the Board depends upon you – our members – to nominate and elect representative Directors. We’ll be calling for Director nominations at the end of June so please consider the part you can play in the future of IPWEA (Vic).
Directorship provides the experience of working within a governance environment, professional networking opportunities and the chance to contribute to the development of the Public Works Engineering sector...I commend it to you!
Ossie Martinz | President, IPWEA (Victoria)
