Expressions of Interest for Alumni President Role

Call for Expressions of Interest AUS-NZ Alumni Association President

Dear Alumni,

As many of you are likely aware, I have been privileged to serve as the President of the INSEAD Alumni Association for Australia and New Zealand for the last 6 years. While in the role, I have championed the Association’s activities and the engagement of the alumni community and led the incorporation of the ANZ Alumni Association to lift its structure to a best practice standard.

My second term comes to an end in June and in accordance with the Constitution, a new President must be elected. It is therefore time to call for nominations for this voluntary role from all INSEAD alumni with active membership in IAA AUS-NZ. The new President will be elected for an initial term of three years and can serve a maximum of 2 consecutive terms.

A search committee has been formed to review Expressions of Interest received, interview the shortlisted candidates and propose a single candidate for election by the Members. If this candidate fails to receive a simple majority of the votes cast, the search committee will reconvene to identify a new candidate.

This is an exciting leadership role with a very real opportunity to positively influence the alumni experience in Australia and New Zealand. The successful candidate will be the national leader for more than 1,800+ highly talented and successful INSEAD alums.  Why volunteer? Hear from some international IAA Presidents: Part 1, Part 2

What is required from the role?

Should you be interested in running for the role of the IAA AUS-NZ President, you can access a copy of the position description here. Your Expression of Interest/motivation letter with your CV attached should be submitted as per the instructions in the position description, no later than March 24th.  Please give appropriate attention to key selection criteria including Demonstrated Contribution to INSEAD & the NAA; Your Plan to Commit the Required Time & Effort; Your Vision for the NAA: desirability, feasibility, and viability.

After the closing date, the search committee will review the EOIs submitted, with a shortlist of strong candidates receiving an interview during April. The committee will then make a recommendation to members for voting in the week of 15-19th of May, with the successful candidate announced at the AGM on the 29th of May.

Please note that under IAA AUS-NZ Constitution, financial members’ votes are the ones that count. Therefore, we remind you to check your membership status and ensure it’s active! Use this link to check your status and join or renew if you need to.
