Tennis South Canterbury – Board Vacancies

Organisation Background

Tennis South Canterbury Incorporated is a non-profit regional sporting organisation that fosters and promotes the game of tennis in the South Canterbury region. TSC’s purpose is to enable and promote quality tennis experiences at every level. There are 14 clubs affiliated to Tennis South Canterbury. The tennis community has worked hard over the years to develop and maintain an outstanding facility in central Timaru, the Trust Aoraki Tennis Centre. We are also fortunate to be able to operate from a very sound financial base.

TSC has a staff/contractor structure in place to support the game, but is reliant on a strong volunteer base to assist across the region. The board are currently looking to appoint an experienced chairperson and potentially two other board members to continue its successful journey.

Particular skills/competencies sought

We have recently completed a strategic review of our organisation including our succession planning. We have identified the need for an experienced chairperson with proven governance skills to further enhance board performance. Also experienced board members with HR, contract management or membership growth/management experience in particular.

Commitment required

The board meets monthly, dates/timing are negotiable. Meetings are in the evening and run for no longer than 2 hours with the first ½ hour dedicated to strategic work. The chairperson would work closely with the paid administrator responsible for the day to day running of TSC. Board members may be required to assist with specific projects from time to time.

Geographic considerations

Ideally the board members would live within the South Canterbury region, particularly the chairperson however we are open to interested people who live elsewhere that have the experience and skills we are looking for.

Remuneration

Unpaid. However reasonable out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
