All Committee positions are for one-year terms. Any HoGS Supporting (Financial) Member is eligible to stand for any Committee position.
Nominations for Committee positions for 2020-21 close on Saturday, 4 July. All nominations should be sent to PublicOfficer@hogs.org.au. You must be nominated by a HoGS Financial Member and seconded by another. Both names may be included in a single email. If you want further details, contact us.
The HoGS Committee is comprised of nine members, including five executive positions:
- Public Officer
HoGS Committee positions are all one year in length, but Committee members often serve for several consecutive years. However, all positions become automatically vacant, and must be filled, at the Annual General Meeting.
The Committee usually meets roughly once every 2-3 months to take care of HoGS business. They are responsible to run all HoGS regular and special events, where they are expected to be HoGS ‘ambassadors’. All those who serve on the Committee receive Financial Membership free of charge during the year/s of their service.
Committee members are required to hold a current Registration to Work with Vulnerable People. If the Registration is made strictly for the HoGS Committee, the registration fee (volunteer) will be covered by the organisation.
