Board Appointments

The Synod Standing Committee of the Uniting Church – Qld Synod makes appointments to various school and college boards and councils on the recommendation of the Synod Schools and Residential Colleges Commission.

Synod appointments to school boards are made by the following process:

1.   Prospective nominees submit a nomination form and resume to the Synod Schools and Residential Colleges Commission.

2.   The Synod Schools and Residential Colleges Commission conducts an interview.

3.   On the basis of the resume, interview, the prospective nominee’s understanding of governance responsibilities, suitable overall Board skills mix, and a current vacancy, the Schools and Residential Colleges Commission decides whether to recommend the prospective nominee’s name to the Synod Standing Committee for membership of a school board.

4.   The Synod Standing Committee determines whether the nominee will be appointed and for what term.

5.    Board members seeking reappointment for a further term must undergo an evaluation process conducted by the Synod Schools and Residential Colleges Commission.
