The NSW Government recognises the importance of independent boards and committees and is dedicated to increasing the diversity of members.
Members of the community, including people of culturally diverse backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply for roles on boards and committees.
Role of boards and committees
Boards and committees govern and ensure corporate compliance and management accountability. They also provide advice and make recommendations about policies, plans and practices and represent a vital link between community needs and the government’s delivery of services.
Benefit of becoming a member
Serving on government boards or committees not only requires a good working knowledge of the ethical and legal considerations of governance, but it also requires a great deal of commitment and passion.
Apart from contributing your time, the appointment on a board member places you in a unique position of trust. Board members play an important role in providing leadership, direction and accountability across all areas of public policy.
You can achieve a great sense of satisfaction and fulfilment, a feeling of giving back to society and of working for the good of the general public.
How to become a member
The NSW Government maintains a register of people who are interested in serving on NSW Government boards and committees. Ministers and government agencies are encouraged to consult this register when they are recruiting members for their boards and committees.
If you would like to make a contribution to the community, join the NSW Government register.
