The Laurel House Board of Governance comprises leaders from the non-profit and for-profit sector who are dedicated to the organisation’s mission. Serving on the Laurel House Board is a wonderful opportunity for an individual who is passionate about strengthening leadership and governance in the area of sexual assault support, awareness and advocacy.

Board members need to have the financial acumen to read and understand the Laurel House financial statements and to otherwise work with the CEO to ensure the organisation fulfills its funding agreement responsibilities.

Board members are required to attend six board meetings per year which includes reading Board materials in advance of the meetings and to come prepared to ask questions and participate in discussions.

Board members are encouraged to serve on one or more committees in their area of expertise and to actively participate in committee work.

Joining the Board is a commitment that members will represent Laurel House within their respective communities and to advocate for Laurel House's mission, programs, and services as appropriate.

The Board encourages people to apply with qualifications and experience in the following areas: • Human Resource and Change Management • Marketing / Branding • Media / Social Media and Public Relations • Advocacy • Governance and Strategy (Strategic Planning)

Laurel House is an inclusive organisation and is committed to ensuring the Tasmanian community, and their needs, are well represented on the Board. As such, we strongly encourage people from diverse backgrounds, including people with disabilities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from culturally diverse backgrounds to apply.
