Annual General Meeting 2019
The Wilderness Society Ltd Notice of 2019 Election of Directors and Annual General Meeting
Since 1976, with the support of our Members, The Wilderness Society has stood at the forefront of Australia’s most historic environmental victories. From the Franklin River, to Fraser Island, to Tasmania’s forests, to the Kimberley and numerous World Heritage Areas, we’re focused on bigger-picture outcomes.
Our vision is for a future where a new National Environment Act gives the Federal Government greater powers and responsibilities to protect the environment, with a new independent National Environmental Protection Authority to act as a watchdog over the system. As a Member, you are a vital part of a broader movement making this happen.
2019 Election of Directors
Each year Members participate in the election of our Board of Directors. The nomination and election process is designed to promote 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.
In July, we called for nominations for the Election of Directors on The Wilderness Society’s Board. Nominations have now closed with four confirmed nominees for election: Sam Rando (NT/SA), Carlos Schafer (Vic), Lisa Roberts (Vic) and Bob Graham (Tas).
Voting in this year’s online election has now closed. The results of the election will be notified to Members at the Annual General Meeting.
Short biographies for all 2019 nominees for the Election of Directors are outlined here.
