Nominations open for two RAA Board positions

12 May, 2023

Nominations for two vacant positions on the RAA Board are now open, and eligible members with senior Executive and leadership experience are strongly encouraged to apply.

In accordance with RAA’s Constitution, nominations for election as a Member Elected Director to the Board of RAA are now open and will close at 5pm on Monday 29 May.

This year, there are two vacancies to be filled, each for a three-year term starting on the date of the Annual General meeting (AGM): 27 November 2023.

The two vacancies are created by the retirement of Dr Stephen Holmes and Ms Sharon Starick, both of whom are eligible for re-election.

President and Chair of the Board Peter Siebels said the RAA Board helps to determine the strategy and provide the guidance to ensure RAA is around for another 120 years.

“To complement the broad range of existing skills held by current Board members, we’re looking for candidates with expertise in Digital, IT, Energy/Infrastructure and Tourism/Travel, as well as experience chairing a Board Audit Committee,” Mr Siebels said.

“In this day and age, having a strong grasp on the areas of digital and IT are imperative to the success of any organisation.

“We want highly skilled business leaders around the Board table to help guide the future direction of this prominent organisation and manage risk for strong and successful future.

“We need the strongest possible leaders to work with our amazing team at RAA to deliver a better future for our members and the wider South Australian community.”

Mr Siebels said a position on the RAA Board provides a unique opportunity to contribute to the growth and success of one of South Australia’s most iconic brands.

“It’s a privilege to hold a position on the Board that oversees the State’s largest membership-based organisation, improving the lives of all our members – all 800,000 of them,” Mr Siebels said.

“I want to encourage experienced executives and business leaders to nominate – to give our members strong candidates to vote for later this year.”

RAA Board election nominations and any items of business for the AGM must be received by the Company Secretary by no later than 5pm (ACST) on Monday, 29 May 2023.

A Nomination Pack, including the prescribed Nomination Form and a copy of the 2023 Endorsement Criteria, is available upon request from the Company Secretary via or by phone on 8202 4451.
