Help steer the future direction of recfishing in WA

Do you have a legal or financial background and want to help steer the future direction of recfishing in WA?

If you answer ‘yes’ to both these question, Recfishwest is keen to hear from you – we are currently seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from suitable candidates from across WA to be considered for appointment to the Recfishwest Board of Directors.

The role of the Recfishwest Board is to provide governance and strategic leadership to Recfishwest assisting in our purpose of delivering “Great fishing experiences for all in the WA community forever” as the State’s peak recreational fishing body.

In line with our Constitution, we are particularly interested in expressions of interest from candidates with legal (commercial law) experience and/or expertise in financial strategy for appointment in November 2020 for a term of two years. Fundamental to your interest should also be an appreciation of, and love for, fishing in Western Australia.

This is a great opportunity to contribute to protecting and enhancing opportunities for WA recfishers and to utilise your skills, knowledge and experience in a forward-thinking organisation.

Use your expertise to help us in our purpose of “creating great fishing experiences for all in the WA community forever”.

Recfishwest values diversity. Women and people from culturally diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

The duties of Directors are performed on a voluntary basis. Meetings are held approximately eight times a year, face-to-face or via video conferencing platforms.

Our Remuneration and Nominations Committee will review all expressions and make recommendations to the Recfishwest Board for appointment following our Annual General Meeting on 10 November.

Please lodge your EOI by completing and emailing us the Candidate Statement Form below and attaching an accompanying CV (four pages maximum) to: info@recfishwest.org.au with ‘Expression of Interest – Board Director’ in the subject line. For more information please call Andrew Rowland on 9246 3366 or visit recfishwest.org.au
