All members can take pride in the achievements of The Wilderness Society over our 41-year history, and an important part of that success story has been the support of our Members.

To acknowledge our Members’ support and encourage their participation in the organisation, as a result of Constitutional changes in late 2015, The Wilderness Society Ltd Board of Directors will be elected by direct ballot in a process leading up to the 2017 Annual General Meeting. The nomination and election process is designed to ensure broad geographic representation and elected Directors must come from at least four of the following six regions: Australian Capital Territory and New South Wales; Queensland; Northern Territory and South Australia; Tasmania; Victoria; and Western Australia. 

The elected Directors who will be retiring at the Annual General Meeting in 2017 are Melissa McQuillan and Michelle Prior from Queensland, opening two (2) Director positions for election. The continuing Directors are Stuart Baird, Leanne Craze, Coral Robinson, Linda Selvey and Craig Zanker.

Directors may be elected from regions in which there are vacancies. These eligible regions are Queensland; Northern Territory and South Australia; Tasmania; Victoria; and Western Australia. There are no vacancies in the region of Australian Capital Territory and New South Wales.


How do I vote?

In August, we wrote to Members calling for nominations for the position of Director on The Wilderness Society Ltd Board. Nominations have now closed and details of the four nominees (Simon McCallum, Sam Rando, Larissa Zimmerman and Peter Follett) can be found here. There are two positions to be filled and voting is now open.

All Members are registered to vote and have received voting instructions either by mail or email, in our Election of Directors, supported by our chosen provider, Simply Voting. Voting ends at 5pm, 16 November 2017 AEDT.
