Join the QLD Advisory Panel

The QLD Advisory Panel is made up of a maximum of 11 volunteer members. Panel Members represent the RAD members in QLD, and provide advice and support to the Regional Management team in relation to RAD activity and events throughout the year. Being on the panel is a great way to meet other RAD members, be part of a supportive community, and contribute to the success of the RAD in QLD.

Panel members are elected for a three year term and are expected to attend meetings which take place monthly, over 8 months of the year (can attend via Zoom if not living locally), and also volunteer at the various RAD events and activities that run throughout the year.  Being on the Panel is extremely rewarding, and we encourage regional members to consider joining.

Find out more about our Regional Advisory Panels here.

The panel is currently accepting nominations for 8 vacancies.

Outgoing Panel Member, Chelsea Clark-Spresser says,

“Teaching dancing – especially when you work for yourself – can be a lonely business and the sometimes-competitive nature of our industry makes it hard to connect with other local teachers. Joining the Regional Advisory Panel opened up a community of like-minded teachers who I now count as friends. Having this network of fellow ballet teachers and studio owners means there’s always a team of people to ask for advice on everything from business operations to teaching strategies. Being able to give back to the dance community as a whole is an added bonus. I remember days spent in RAD holiday workshops and events when I was a student and now being part of providing these opportunities to young dancers, is so rewarding.”

Members who are RAD Registered Teachers or RAD Member Plus and over 18 years of age are welcome to be nominated to join the QLD Advisory Panel if there are vacancies. If there are more nominations than there are vacancies, then members will vote for their incoming Panel member(s) electronically prior to the AGM (or at the AGM if they haven’t done so already) and the elected members will be announced at the AGM. If we receive the same number of nominations as vacancies, then everyone who is nominated can be accepted.
