Call for Board nominations – community appointment

We invite members of the community to apply for a position on our Board.

The Commission’s role is to coordinate and promote regional and economic development in the South West Region. As a statutory authority of the WA Government, the Commission aims to maximise job creation, broaden local economies, identify the need for infrastructure services, provides information and advice to business, and ensure access to government services.

The six-member board comprises representatives of local government and community and meets bi-monthly to set policy and make decisions about a broad range of economic and regional development projects.

The Commission is seeking to further strengthen its diversity, so people of Aboriginal or migrant backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. People may nominate themselves or others; organisations may also make nominations. People nominated as a prospective member should possess interest and knowledge relevant to regional communities. Relevant fields of
involvement could include business and industry; employment, education and training; tourism and recreation.

Applicants will be assessed on their ability to make a significant contribution to a board, together with a demonstrated involvement in either the economic or social development of the region. The term of appointment will be between one to three years.
