NOW is the time to apply

The 2022 Annual General Meeting will include the election of four Directors to the QDN Board. We would like to invite Expressions of Interest from Members who are keen to advance their leadership skills for the benefit of Queenslanders with disability.

We value a diversified and representative board, and we especially encourage and invite members residing in regional, rural and/or remote Queensland to apply. We wish to have a board with a balanced representation of gender with knowledge and lived experience of physical, cognitive, sensory and/or social/emotional disability. We invite our younger members to put themselves forward, and encourage people who identify as LGBTIQA+, or who bring a differing cultural and/or socio-economic perspective.

In terms of professional skills and experience, we would welcome:

  • Information and Communications Technology and ICT systems management
  • Knowledge and experience of marketing and advertising, grant writing
