The Board of Volunteering Queensland Inc. is a skills-based Board that plays a critical role in governing and driving the strategic direction and transformation of the organisation.

Volunteering Queensland Inc. is currently awaiting imminent final ASIC documentation to transition to a Company Limited by Guarantee. In line with this transition and the retirement of four current Directors, a statewide recruitment process to identify six new Board Directors is currently being finalised. 

The recruitment process is in line with both the existing Incorporated Association Constitution and the redrafted Company Limited by Guarantee Constitution, which will come into effect on completion of the transition process.  

It is hoped to have the process completed in time to present new Directors to Members for ratifying at the AGM. 

We hope you will join us
