2018 March Board meeting

Stormwater Australia is the peak body representing the interests of stormwater practitioners nationally. As a grass roots, largely volunteer resourced organisation we seek additional Board members for our national board.

Director Nominations - opens 15th September and closes 29th September 2018.

Our vision:

Through influencing decision makers, an empowered Australian stormwater industry is innovating to manage stormwater as a resource, protecting waterways, people and property, enhancing Australian lives and building our resilience to climate change.

Our values are

  • Collaboration – We work with openness, honesty, caring and collaboratively to build enduring working relationships, teamwork and unity with our membership
  • Creativity – We foster an innovation orientated culture that is creative and trials the unconventional
  • Integrity – We act with integrity and provide respected stewardship for the stormwater industry
  • Courage – We are courageous in our approach to change in how stormwater is valued, managed and utilised in Australia

Over the next 12-18 months we have a number of exciting projects underway which will require the input of experienced, knowledgeable and skilled people. These projects include:

  • Engaging with the federal government in policy development areas and next National Water Initiative as a follow on from successful efforts influencing Productivity Commission’s National Water Reform Inquiry Report
  • Engaging in a national process of governance reform with member state associations to achieve better alignment of governance procedures and compliance efforts
  • Progressing development of improved business and administration practices in order to achieve sustainable, effective, efficient and valued services
  • Continuing our successful national conference and awards program which are held in high regard across industry
  • Lifting our digital engagement presence to add value to our members.

Stormwater Australia requires a mix of skills and experience that holistically build the strength of the board. Generic ones include director, finance, auditing, business development, advocacy, marketing and communications, legal/compliance, risk management, corporate strategy, digital media/technology, human resources, constitutional reform, corporate governance and policy, commercial business experience, commercialisation of intellectual property, change management. More specific ones include stormwater management, water industry, education and skills development and member based not for profits, public policy government links and environment. Our future requirements require enhancing our deepening and broadening our competencies across our requirements. We are especially interested in speaking to candidates who bring strong company director skills and diversity in gender, cultural background, age and with independent thinking and experience across different state jurisdictions.
