SRA BOARD ANNOUNCEMENT – INDEPENDENT CHAIR APPOINTED
The Board of Ski Racing Australia today announced the appointment of Mrs Rowena McNally to the SRA board as an Independent Director and the new Chair of Ski Racing Australia effective immediately.
At the SRA AGM in December last year, a majority of the membership voted for a change in the form of a new Constitution. As part of this, a new-look board structure was adopted. Each state democratically voted one State Director to the board and at the same time the “interim” board (State Chair’s) began the recruitment process for Independent Directors. The newly appointed board took over this process and following interviews and a further board meeting this week, SRA announces the sports first Independent Chair.
Rowena’s background spans some 20 plus years as an Independent Chair, Non-executive Director, Board Facilitator and governance specialist. Formerly a corporate lawyer, Rowena brings a wealth of experience in governance and most importantly assisting business and sports through challenging times. Additionally, she has spent time leading risk adverse sports such as Queensland Isa Rodeo through similar challenges that currently facing Ski Racing Australia.
The newly elected board of Ski Racing Australia welcome Rowena to the Chair position and look forward to working with her to lead the sport out of the COVID-19 challenge and well into the future.
Further appointments on Independent Director Roles will be made in due course.
Yours in Ski Racing,
The SRA Board
Jon Horbury – Ski Racing NSW Director
Don Gulley – Ski Racing QLD Director
Ben Casey – CACT Ski Racing Director
Kris Pogorelec – Ski Racing Vic Director
