Open Board Positions

Down Syndrome Tasmania is seeking expressions of interest for General Board members to fill positions being vacated by long-standing members; areas of expertise being sought include fundraising, governance, accounting, legal, advocacy, marketing and communications.

DST is a grassroots organisation with limited paid staff which relies significantly on the efforts of volunteers. There is an expectation that Board members will be actively involved in the work of the organisation.

Board members need to be collaborative with well-developed people skills and an ability to work well within a team. Connection to the Down syndrome community through lived experience as a person with Down syndrome, carer, parent or other family member or through strong professional links to the Down syndrome community is preferred. All Board positions are voluntary.

If you would like to nominate yourself or have any questions please contact us on 1300 592 050 or
