Board Director Opportunities Open – Encouraging Outstanding Applicants to Apply
Sheep Producers Australia (SPA) is the Peak National Industry Body for the Australian Sheep Meat Industry. Based in Canberra, our purpose is to be a strategic leader working to benefit Australia’s sheep industry to achieve a productive, profitable and sustainable future. Our vision is to be a trusted influencer, leader and advisor for Australian sheep producers, industry, and government.
SPA is governed by a skills-based board, comprised of a minimum of four and maximum of seven member-elected Directors and up to two Board-appointed Independent Directors.
Two Board Vacancies:
SPA seeks to appoint two member-elected Directors at our upcoming AGM in November.
The vacancies have arisen due to the completion of term by a member-elected Director, who is eligible to stand for re-election; and the other is a newly-created position.
SPA encourages candidates who are passionate about the success of the Australian sheep industry and SPA, who possess a desire to contribute to the industry good and seek to further their professional governance expertise to apply.
The SPA Board values diversity of thinking, and skills that encompass a broad range of high-level knowledge and experience. Currently the Board is seeking applications from candidates with demonstrated experience in two or more of the following areas:
In accordance with SPA’s constitution, member-elected directors are appointed for a three year term.

The SPA Board undertakes a skills analysis, determines the required skills to be sought in candidates in order to address any perceived skills gaps, and contracts an independent secretariat for the Board Selection Committee (BSC).
Following the closure of applications, the BSC convenes a meeting to identify a shortlist of candidates for interviews. Interviews are conducted in a panel-format with the BSC and will be approximately one hour in duration. During the interview, candidates will be expected to articulate their credentials for inclusion on the Board, such how they meet the criteria and how they can contribute to the Board, their ideas on SPA’s contribution to the red meat industry, their thoughts on industry issues; and the Committee will ask a series of questions. There will also be an opportunity for the candidate to ask questions.
