Call for Nominations for Demand Class Director

Posted by on 16 August 2017

The auDA Board is seeking nominations, including from its demand class membership, for the Demand Class Director casual vacancy resulting from the resignation of Dr Michaella Richards.

As the policy authority and industry self-regulatory body for the .au domain space, auDA plays a key role in ensuring the stability and security of the .au name space. The auDA Board is committed to delivering positive outcomes for the millions of people who rely on the .au domain space, its membership, and its staff.

In accordance with clause 19.7 of auDA’s Constitution, the auDA Board may appoint a Director in the event of a casual vacancy. The successful candidate will be appointed for the balance of Dr Richard’s term, which expires at the 2017 AGM.

Applicants with demonstrated company director experience are particularly encouraged to nominate. Applicants will need to submit to a probity process, including police checks and a bankruptcy search.

Nominations highlighting applicant suitability can be sent to Di Parker, Company Secretary of auDA, at
