ANZAC House Trust (the Trust) is a charitable trust which was set up in 1949 for the purposes of establishing and maintaining ANZAC House, and for carrying out the charitable objects of RSL NSW.

RSL NSW is the trustee of the Trust (Trustee) and the Trust is managed on its behalf by a Board of Management.  The Board of Management comprises the State President, Vice-President, Treasurer and one other Director of RSL NSW, the RSL NSW State Secretary, the Premier of NSW (or their nominee) and three public members.

The public member positions are currently vacant, and the Trustee is looking to appoint 3 people to fill these vacancies in a volunteer capacity.

In the short to medium term, the Trust is working to procure a new ‘ANZAC House’ premises in accordance with the objects of the Trust Deed.

The Trustee is seeking expressions of interest from eligible people to join the Board as ‘Public Members’ and work with the Board and Trustee in this process.

The Trustee is looking for members which have previous experience as directors, executives or specialist consultants in any of the areas of finance, governance, risk and compliance, strategy and property development and management. Industry experience in a trust or corporate foundation, the property or construction industry or government revenue or finance is preferable.

Under the Trust Deed, to qualify as a ‘Public Member’ a person must be ‘qualified to vote at elections of members of the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales’.

 

Role Requirements

Public members of the AHT will be required to attend no fewer than four meetings annually, which are chaired by the President of RSL NSW.

The role is a voluntary role, although reasonable costs and disbursements of attending meetings and performing the functions of a member of the Board may be reimbursed.
