Are you serious about adult learning?
As an ALA Board member, you will bring your energy, expertise and know-how to advance our mission of equitable access to lifelong and lifewide learning. You will also be actively involved in setting ALA’s strategic direction and advocating for our 5 key policy areas:
- Adult and community education
- Adult language, literacy and numeracy
- Lifelong learning communities
- Inclusive learning culture
- Educating for sustainable development
ALA Board members must be committed to equitable access to lifelong learning and to adult and community education. Skills in business development, governance and policy analysis would be highly prized, along with strong managerial experience in the not-for-profit sector.
Who can nominate?
To ensure that the Board has the right balance of skills to effectively lead the organisation into the future, Adult Learning Australia is encouraging nominations from individuals with a range of qualifications, skills and experience. It is also desirable for the Board to encompass diversity in aspects such as gender, age, background and perspective.
There are currently 3 Board vacancies. A nominee, or their organisation, must be a registered member for at least 30 days prior to nomination. We encourage all members to consider nominating for one of the available positions.
Nominations open: 3 March 2020
Nominations close: 27 March 2020 @ 5 pm AEDT
New members announced: At the ALA AGM – 8 May 2020
