In addition, the State Government expects diversity of gender on Boards of sporting associations, particularly if grant applications are to be favourably considered. The intention is for Boards to comprise 40% male, 40% female and 20% optional.
In ARCHERY SA’s case, the Board comprises five Elected Board Members and two Appointed Board Members, for a total of seven. This, under the 40:40:20 measure, equates to 3 male and 3 female, with one extra.
The Board welcomes and encourages nominations from members of any gender for the elected member vacancies and the two appointed member positions. Please apply to make a positive contribution to archery in South Australia.
Working with Children Check
All persons who work with or are likely to work with children in South Australia must undergo screening by the DHS (Department of Human Services Screening Unit), known as a ‘Working with Children Check’. This requirement extends to Directors of ARCHERY South Australia. ARCHERY SA’s Child Safe Environment Policy also requires ARCHERY SA Directors to obtain a Working with Children Check.
Failure to do so is an offence, which may result in significant financial penalties or imprisonment under the Child Safety (Prohibited Persons) Act 2016 (SA).
Candidates must provide evidence that they hold a current, valid Working with Children Check issued by DHS or have applied to DHS for a Working with Children Check . To allow ARCHERY SA to verify the details of a candidate’s Working with Children Check directly with DHS, candidates must provide their full name (exactly as it was provided to the DHS Screening Unit) and either the Screening Reference Number or Screening Application Number issued by DHS. Candidates must notify ARCHERY SA of the outcome of any application for screening completed after the candidate has submitted their nomination form.
Applications for a Working with Children Check may be lodged via this link.
Candidates are urged to lodge their application as early as possible, as DHS has indicated that the screening process may take a few weeks to complete.
