A Board Director is appointed for a four (4) year term. Directors are eligible to re-nominate for a future term. This year, we have three full four-year term vacancies.

All Directors are appointed by Penrith City Council following recommendations of the Board.

New terms commence following the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 24 October 2023.

All Directors will be expected to undertake AICD (or similar) Company Director training upon commencement.
