AMEB NSW Committee members


October 9, 2011

Seeking a new generation of Innovators to represent the interests of the Music Education Community in NSW …

AMEB calls for Nominations for 4 Private Teacher Representatives to

sit on the AMEB (NSW) Committee from 2012

*Nominations CLOSE SOON : Friday 21st OCTOBER 2011

Note: Self Nominations are acceptable.

Do you want to have a hand in shaping Australia’s music education future into the 21st Century? Well this could be your opportunity … it’s a little known fact that there is a significant level of professional music and speech teacher representation on the AMEB (NSW) Committee with no fewer than three Private Music Teacher Representatives and one Private Speech Teacher Representative representing the interests of our profession. Every two years elections are held for these honorary positions and it’s once again time to take a vote.

The election is particularly exciting this year with the AMEB recently foreshadowing what many see as a greater willingness to establish a more collaborative relationship with the Music and Speech Teaching communities in NSW. In the latest AMEB Newsletter, the Board stressed that the role of private teacher representatives on the NSW Committee is key to providing wider opportunities for the music, speech and drama communities to participate in the development of policies and practices for the AMEB (NSW). A welcome development indeed !

To be eligible to nominate or to be nominated for election, and to vote, a private teacher must have enrolled a candidate other than themselves in AMEB (NSW) examinations, in either of the two years immediately preceding the year of the election. These honorarium positions are for a period of two years and require attendance at four compulsory meetings in the course of each year. Elected nominees are appointed to the Board at the discretion of the Minister for Education.

So if you consider yourself to be a leader in your chosen profession your colleagues need you !

Nominations forms can be obtained from the AMEB State Manager – email: office@ameb.nsw.edu.au

Ballot papers will be distributed (along with a biography of each of the candidates) to eligible voters in November with 2012 AMEB Teachers Handbook.

Remember NOMINATIONS CLOSE : 21st OCTOBER 2011
