Increase to Aggregate Director Remuneration

The Board is responsible for determining the remuneration of each individual director.  In alignment with the DocA review dated 18 April 2018, it was confirmed the Board would be reconstituted and an increase in total remuneration to accommodate the new Board structure was foreshadowed in the 2018 AGM for members to approve in 2019.

Following a review of the appropriate level of director remuneration and as recommended by the newly appointed Nomination Committee, the Board considers that it is appropriate to fix a figure of $580,000 inclusive of superannuation as the maximum annual aggregate remuneration for directors. 

In reaching this view, the Board has considered the skills, responsibilities and expectations of directors, and the level of remuneration required to reward, incentivise and encourage directors to join auDA's Board and to contribute the necessary time and effort to perform their role.
