Northern Rivers Tourism is calling for nominations from interested and qualified people to join its skills-based Board.

An incorporated association, NRT is the regional tourism authority for the Northern Rivers of New South Wales. 

Following its restructure in 2007, NRT says it appointed a skills-based board, a CEO and achieved several significant milestones in 2008.

The new board members will be appointed by an independent selection panel based on the knowledge, skills and experience of nominees as assessed against specific selection criteria.

There are four board vacancies arising, three of which are for a three-year term, one of which is for a one-year term.

“While the primary criteria for selection is skills based, in achieving balance, consideration will also be given to securing board members from different geographic areas, industry sectors and size of operations,” NRT said.

Regional consultancy Sustainable Options Pty Ltd has been appointed to convene the selection process.

For further information on the selection process or to request an information pack, including a nomination form and the selection criteria, contact Sue Ryan sue@sustainableoptions.com.au or 6621 7283.

The vacancies on NRT’s Board will be advertised in regional media in the week beginning 13 October. Applications close COB Friday 7 November 2008
