What the role is about

YACVic’s Board of Governance is elected by its members. The board is responsible for ensuring that YACVic is governed in a way that complies with the law and allows the organisation to achieve its mission. While the board oversees the effective operation of YACVic and sets the strategic vision and direction of the organisation, YACVic’s CEO is responsible for the day-to-day management decisions. The CEO reports directly to the board.

Check out the video below by YACVic young board member Katerina Dadanis where she talks about her experience of being a part of the YACVic board.

The board is made up of a maximum of eight YACVic members, with at least four of whom must be aged 25 or younger when elected. At least one board member must reside outside metropolitan Melbourne, and board members are elected for two years.

To nominate for these positions, please read complete and follow the instructions on the nomination form.


Nominations close at 5pm on Thursday 31 October 2019.

The time frame gives members four weeks to nominate and have a valid nomination form signed by another YACVic member.

Further information about what you need to include with your nomination can be found on the attached nomination form

Please note that to be eligible to nominate (and vote for those nominating) you must be a current, paid-up member of YACVic.
