Dear ADG Members,

The Australian Directors’ Guild is governed by an elected board that includes some of Australia’s most celebrated Directors. Four Board members are now nearing the end of their three-year terms, and the Australian Electoral Commission is working with the ADG to hold an election. I would sincerely like to acknowledge the work and commitment of all of our current Board members – but more on them and their work soon.

Here’s what you need to know today:

Close of Electoral Roll: Next Monday 18 March 2024. 

Full Emerging and Full Established financial members are eligible to vote, and to stand for election. 

The Roll of Voters includes all financial full members as of 18 March 2024. 

Current board members may stand again. 

Ensure your membership is active by next Monday 18 March to enable you to vote and/or stand.

The positions: 

· Vice President - New Media

· Vice President - Documentary

· Secretary

· Treasurer

Note: ADG recognises that ‘New Media’ is dated terminology. Position titles are dictated by the ADG constitution and this title is expected to be changed after a revision of the constitution in the next year or so.

Nomination Period: Opens 25 March 2024, Closes 10 April 2024.

Important Details for Members:

The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) will publish the Election Notice and Nomination forms on their website, as well as email them to all ADG members at the start of the nomination period. These documents will also be available on the ADG website.

Voting Process: Absentee voting applications (as required) close on 23 April 2024. Postal voting opens on 24 April 2024 and concludes on 22 May 2024. Election results will be announced within 14 days post-ballot closure.

Your Role: This election offers the opportunity to contribute to the ADG’s direction and leadership. We particularly encourage members from underrepresented groups and/or underrepresented parts of the country to consider running for a Board position.

Get in touch with me or President Rowan Woods if you’re thinking of nominating yourself or a fellow ADG member and would like to talk it through.

Warm regards,

Sophie Harper

Executive Director
