2. Orienteering Australia is seeking expressions of interest to fill 2 vacancies and 2 pending vacancies.
The 2 vacancies are the positions on the OA Board of Director, Development and Director, Media and Communications. Over the weekend the OA Conference resolved that a part-time position to support media, communications and marketing be created. This will be advertised in the near future.
Two pending vacancies are the positions of Director, High Performance on the OA Board and Chair of the Australian Senior Foot Orienteering Selection Panel. Eric Morris and Paul Liggins have indicated that work and family time pressures mean that they will not be standing for re-appointment to these positions at the annual general meeting in April.
Expressions of interest for these national vacancies should be sent to OA Executive Officer, John Harding at
