Management Committee Applications Open

SCEC is seeking energetic and skilled individuals to join the organisation’s Management Committee, people with a passion to set SCEC’s future directions in protecting the natural environment and ensuring a sustainable future for the Sunshine Coast and Noosa region.

We are looking for several experienced leaders to complement our current voluntary Management Committee members. We are looking for a range of expertise including strategic planning, environmental advocacy, communications and fundraising, community and private sector engagement, information, education and capacity building, financial management and non-profit governance. 

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a respected regional environment group that has been at the forefront protecting the Sunshine Coast’s special natural qualities and lifestyles for 42 years. You can help to address the future challenges facing our region and communities, from extensive urban development, increases in traffic, tourism, and carbon emissions, over-consumption of natural resources, degradation of natural habitats and ecosystem functions, and the impacts from climate change.

A key part of SCEC’s work is as the regional peak body, providing support for groups working on local and regional environmental and sustainability issues, monitoring and raising awareness and lobbying at all levels of government for improved policy and development outcomes. Currently, over 50 SCEC Member Groups represent an active combined membership of over 15,000 individuals.

Our Management Committee members:

  • Exercise good governance of the organisation and guide the strategic direction
  • Offer advice from their areas of experience to the Committee and the staff team
  • Help to grow our network of stakeholders and supporters
  • Serve on at least one Committee working group and participate actively in its work
  • Ideally have or be willing to acquire an understanding and appreciation of the Sunshine Coast region’s history and future opportunities

 

Service on SCEC’s Management Committee is voluntary, though brings with it abundant rich satisfaction in doing something worthwhile.

Committee members are required to attend monthly meetings, at least 8 per year. Please see further details in the Role Description here
