Each candidate is well-credentialed, with appropriate formal qualifications and long experience in financial roles over many years. Their enthusiasm and backgrounds, including MYOB knowledge, made them both most suitable for appointment. Each has the unanimous support of the Board.
The WIA sought expressions of interest for the two positions from early September, with applications closing on 21 October. Advertising avenues included the website, Amateur Radio magazine and the VK1WIA weekly broadcast.
Tasks required include preparation of yearly budgets based on past performance, attendance of monthly Board teleconferences, submission of interim financial statements to the Board, preparation of end-of-year financial reports for review by the WIA Auditor, and presentation to WIA members at the Annual General Meeting, along with general involvement in the financial and corporate affairs of the Institute.
In cooperation with the President and the Executive Administrator, the Treasurer is also required to submit yearly financial reports to the ACMA in relation to the work performed on behalf of the Commonwealth in examination assessment, certificate of proficiency issue and callsign recommendation services.
The Board decided that Chris VK3PAT will immediately immerse himself in learning quickly about the WIA’s finances and operations, and then report his views to the Board with recommendations concerning the way forward.
