“Historically, we haven’t had our Australian Registered Exercise Professionals (AusREPs) represented on our Board, so to be giving two AusREP members the opportunity to do so, is significant,” says CEO of industry body Fitness Australia Barrie Elvish.
Current position openings exist for two AusREP members and one Business Member, each for a 3 year term, in a voluntary capacity. All Directors have skills and experience to complement each other and enable Fitness Australia to achieve its objectives.
“We encourage our Business and AusREP members to consider the criteria in the information kit and apply to be elected to our Board of Directors,” says Elvish.
Elvish adds that he’s proud of the recent historic decision where Fitness Australia members and its Board of Directors unanimously voted to have AusREPs from the Australian Register of Exercise Professionals represented on the Board for the first time at a special general meeting held in Sydney on 30th September.
Fitness Australia is committed to the continual development of a flexible and agile culture, with effective structures, systems and processes to help achieve the vision for more Australians to be more active, more often.
Applications for positions on the Board are open until 5pm Thursday 24th October 2019. Nominees for the Board with newly elected Board members to be officially appointed at Fitness Australia’s Annual General Meeting in November 2019.
