WHAT IS A BOARD DIRECTOR

Board members are expected to participate in as many meetings as possible (5 per year) by phone or in person and contribute their expertise and support throughout the year towards Green Music Australia’s goals: making Australia’s music and arts
sector more environmentally sustainable and working with artists and sector leaders to speak out for action on climate change and environmental protection. GMA asks its Board members to advise and support in the following priorities:
- Diversifying fundraising and other income streams so that the organisation is less reliant on existing grants, can develop more financial security and support
- Raise the profile of organisation to create new opportunities and grow impact
- Expand GMA membership to the music and events industry by assisting with new contacts and ideas.
