Call for nominations to the PAC Australia board

  |   News

PAC Australia is seeking candidates for the Board of Management to ensure the ongoing good governance of our organisation and contribute to our work connecting, developing and advocating for our membership and stakeholders in the performing arts.

The board will consider all nominations against our board composition guidelines and skills matrix to ensure the board is representative and relevant. The board emphasises it wants a wide field of nominees to ensure we have strong and representative leadership. We will then circulate recommendations prior to the board election to be held in October at our Annual General Meeting. We are also committed to identifying and encouraging leaders across the sector and the board is keen to build a list of future candidates for PAC Board positions and other industry opportunities as they arise.


In alignment with our board skills matrix, and to ensure good representation across the industry and the membership, we are particularly seeking nominees currently engaged in finance/accounting, presenting, producing or development. Along with these expertise areas, we are looking for individuals with a First Nations or CALD background. We particularly encourage nominations from regionally-based leaders and people under the age of 35.


PAC Australia is deeply engaged in this period of transformation for live performance. PAC Australia members are at the core of cultural life in communities across Australia and their contribution is crucial to renewal. We encourage you to take this opportunity to shape the future of Australia’s cultural life.


Candidates seeking to nominate should review the PAC Australia board nomination process. If you wish to discuss candidacy in more detail, please call me or send me a message.


Nominations can be submitted here.
