The upcoming board year marks an exciting phase for FSC ANZ as it embarks on the third year of a strategic plan with numerous significant initiatives in progress. Notably, the revision of the National Forest Stewardship Standard for Australia.

Additionally, its Promotional Licence Holder (PLH) partnership program continues to flourish across Australia and New Zealand, and the engagement with FSC community through events like International Women’s Day, International Day of Forests, the PLH forum and FSC Forest Week campaigns foster collaboration across Australia and New Zealand, emphasising the significance of FSC certification.

The momentum of FSC ANZ has reached new heights, underscoring the important role of the board directors and members in ensuring continued success.

Directors serve for three-year terms. The positions are determined at the FSC Australia’s AGM either by

  • direct appointment when the number of eligible candidates does not exceed the relevant vacancy, or
  • voting by the FSC Australia members when there are more eligible candidates than vacant positions.

The successful nominees will be determined and announced at the AGM to be held on 30 May 2024, in Canberra.

The board is comprised of nine directors, three from each chamber (economic, environmental and social).

This year there are six director positions available as follows:

  • Economic Chamber – two positions available
  • Environmental Chamber – two positions available
  • Social Chamber – two positions available.

To nominate for the board, complete and email the “Nomination as a Director of Responsible Forest Management Australia Limited” form by 26 April 2024.
