On Monday 7 May 2018 an email was sent to all Shoalhaven Arts Board Members advising the following:
Following discussions with the working group, the Mayor has agreed to incorporate an Arts Award (Outstanding contribution to the Arts in the Shoalhaven) into the Annual Australia Day Awards held in January each year.
Please note, this matter is separate to the other Arts Awards/prizes which are being considered by the Board.
The Mayor has requested that a Community member on the Arts Board be nominated by the Board to become a member on the Australia Day Panel. The Panel meets approximately 2-3 times a year, mostly during the day to discuss nomination process, determine award recipients (in December) and to discuss the success of the event post Australia Day.
As a panel member you will not only be determining the Arts Category but also judging on the following categories:
· Youth Citizen
· Sports Person
· Young Sports Person
· Outstanding Contributions to an Inclusive Shoalhaven
· Outstanding Contribution to the Environment
Therefore, I am calling for nominations from members who wishes to fill this position. Please respond via email by Thursday 10 May. In your response, please nominate why you believe you are the best fit for this position.
An E-meeting will be required to ratify/determine the nomination.
As at Thursday 10 May 2018, only two (2) expressions of interest (EOI) were received. Both applications being Karen Akehurst and Alison Chiam are attached to the report as Confidential Attachments. As two EOI’s were received the Board is required to put the nominations to a vote.
This panel position will be voted based on the majority of votes by all SAB members.
