Board reappoints highly skilled Directors

28 March, 2024

It’s an exciting time for RAA as we grow our existing businesses, from insurance and roadside, through to travel and solar – and we’re also exploring what we can offer our around 820,000 members in new areas, like home energy.

During such a complex and critical time for our 120-year-old organisation, it’s important we have continuity of governance and expertise in areas aligned to RAA’s strategic plan.

To this end, the RAA Board has unanimously appointed Kim Cheater and Jacqui McGill AO as Board Appointed Directors following a recommendation from the RAA Nominations Committee to endorse such appointments, in accordance with RAA’s Constitution.

“Kim & Jacqui are experienced professional directors who between them contribute a raft of highly desired skills and experience to RAA, and the Board believes the retention of their skills and governance is critical to the organisation’s future success,” said RAA President & Chairman Kathy Gramp.

RAA’s Constitution permits the Board to appoint up to three of RAA’s nine non-Executive Directors (known as a Board Appointed Director).

“The Board-appointment process represents a win-win for members in making sure the Board has the diversity of skills and experience needed to govern and grow,” Ms Gramp said.

The reappointments mean there are no casual vacancies arising, so the Board is not calling for nominations for Director appointments in 2024.

“Retaining Kim and Jacqui on the Board for a further three-year term will help to secure and strengthen the future of RAA and help us to achieve the best possible outcomes for our members,” Ms Gramp said.
