Calling for Nominations for Councillors 2021-22
The Pioneers Association of South Australia Inc. requires that each year there is a call for nominations for Council positions.
To be eligible for election to the position of Councillor, the nominee must be either a Pioneer or Life member for not less than 6 months. Associate members are not eligible to hold a position on Council.
A Councillor is expected to regularly attend scheduled Council meetings which can be face-to face or by distance communications. As leaders of the organisation Councillors work to ensure the organisation is held in high esteem in the community and is managed so as to ensure its ongoing success.
The Council is composed of up to 15 members who are elected for one year. Should more than 15 members nominate, an election will be held.
Nomination forms must be received by the Returning Officer before 5.00 pm, Monday 16 August 2021. They may be delivered personally, via email to email@example.com or by post to Pioneers SA, Level 4, Stafford House, 25 Leigh Street, Adelaide SA 5000. Hard copy nominations should be in a sealed envelope addressed to The Returning Officer. All nominations will be acknowledged.
The nomination Form along with documents that provide an insite into Pioneers SA and the role of a Council member can be found in Member Resources, Council Info. Click Council Info to go there.
