Time Commitment 

Being on the IAA board can be time consuming. What you get out of it also depends on what you put into it. Board members can expect (as a minimum): 

  • 1-2 hr board meeting at least once per month + pre-reading (Current meeting time is scheduled on the third Monday of each month, at 9am AWST) 
  • 1 hr per week asynchronous catch ups 
  • other committees or events as scheduled throughout the year (this year has had 5 sub-committees and 7 events).

If you become an office bearer or assist in other project or committee work this time can be considerable, however the experience and contacts you will gain are invaluable. 

Further information on the roles and responsibilities of the Board is available on our website.
