What does being a director mean?

The role of a Director is to help shape our Association's future direction, providing guidance to the executive team, making policy decisions and being responsible for the financial sustainability of the Association.

The Board currently meets for four face-to-face meetings at ALIA House in Canberra each year and holds additional teleconference meetings when required.  The Directors are invited to attend special events in their own state or territory, giving them the opportunity to talk with and learn from colleagues across all sectors.  (All travel and accommodation expenses are met by the Association).

Being a Director provides a unique opportunity to ensure the Association is supporting our Members into the future.

Information about the current ALIA Board can be found on the Board of Directors webpage and further details on how the Board works can be found here
