In accordance with RACV’s Election By-Laws, the RACV Board has retained specialist independent advisers who have assisted with a three - stage assessment process for each candidate having regard to the needs of the significant and now substantial RACV business operations.
In this year’s election, the essential skills targeted by the Board include a demonstrated advanced level of competence in commercial legal practice, the leisure industry or a closely related sector (eg tourism or hospitality) and marketing as well as an advanced level of governance and behavioural competencies.
The Board election process provides members to have the option to appoint the RACV President and Chairman of the Board to act as proxy to vote on their behalf.
The RACV Board has reviewed the outcome of the comprehensive assessment process and determined the two candidates with the most suitable skills and experience to act as RACV directors. As approved by the RACV Board, the President and Chairman intends to vote proxies granted to him in favour of the following election candidates, John Slattery and Stephanie Reeves.
The RACV Board supports the above candidates and believes that it is in the best interests of members to vote in favour of those candidates.
The RACV Board encourages all Members to vote in the Board election and respects that the decision to vote for specific candidates is a matter for each individual member. When casting their vote members are entitled to choose to either:
A. vote for two (2) candidates by ticking the relevant box next to the relevant candidate's names on the ballot paper
B. tick the box on the ballot paper appointing the President and Chairman as their proxy.
Members will receive copies of voting information and ballot papers in early September which will contain further information on the voting process.
