As outlined in CRNA's constitution, CRNA requires a minimum of 3 people to sit on the Board of Directors. This will mean that the individuals on the Board hold responsibility for ensuring the legal compliance and financial solvency of CRNA. The liability for decisions made by the Board of Directors will be covered by Director's Indemnity insurance, and applies to the individuals on the Board, meaning the member organisations that people on the Board are from will not be in any way exposed to liabilities incurred as a result of Board decisions.
If you are keen on being involved in helping to steer CRNA and support community recycling around the country, but do not wish to sit on the Board of Directors, that's fine - a National Steering Committee representing member enterprises will still hold monthly teleconference meetings to discuss CRNA operations, formulate responses to issues affecting the sector, and drive CRNA's various projects. Feel free to contact the CRNA Secretary if you would like to discuss being involved in the Steering Committee in 2016/17.
In order for your organisation to nominate a representative for the Board of Directors, you need to have completed an Application for Membership. This makes your organisation an official member of CRNA, but limits your organisation's liability to a contribution of $10 in the unlikely event of CRNA winding up. Additionally, you must have paid your membership dues to nominate or second somebody for a position on the Board, so please check to make sure your invoices have been paid.
If you are considering a nomination for Board of Directors, great! Please fill out, scan and send to to our Secretary the attached CRNA Director Nomination form. You will need a CRNA member organisation to nominate and second you. Someone from your own organisation can nominate you for a position on the Board, and if you need a seconder, please contact our Secretary to discuss when you return the nomination form.
If you would like any further advice regarding any of the above, including the process and legalities of becoming a Director of CRNA, please don't hesitate to contact the CRNA Secretary.
Nominations are due by 5pm, Tuesday 24st October 2017 and can be in person or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
