    At the 2022 ADIESA Annual General Meeting, three elected board members will be stepping down and an election will be held to fill these vacant positions. This is an opportunity for Members to nominate a Representative onto the ADIESA Board, which is a great chance for organisations and individuals to make a significant contribution to the ADIESA mission and enhance collaboration between Defence and industry. The ADIESA Directors are critical to building impartial relationships with key Defence stakeholders on behalf of our members in order to enhance collaboration between Defence and industry.

    Board nomination forms can be downloaded from here.

    Role and Responsibilities   

    • Advocate for ADIESA and its mission, and embrace a  “best for Defence and whole of industry” perspective. 
    • Contribute to the organisation and implementation of ADIESA events, such as Environmental Working Groups, Focus Groups, workshops and networking events. 
    • Represent ADIESA at meetings with Defence customers and industry. 
    • Attend monthly board meetings, with the expectation of actioning assigned tasks between meetings. 
    • Ideally, be in the position to host at least one board meeting during the year. 

    It is important to note that ADIESA is not a lobbying organisation and does not seek to represent any particular view to Defence or Government. Its primary mission is to encourage collaboration between Defence and industry to achieve improved Capability outcomes for the ADF.

    The current board wishes to highlight that it values diversity among board members – for example diversity among member organisations, and of gender and age of individual nominees. Please take this into consideration in your deliberations regarding nominees and ultimately the voting process.

    This is to advise that, as we monitor the COVID-19 situation across the ACT, we will be providing more specific details in relation to date, time and venue as soon as possible via Austender.
