Future Director Opportunities Initiative
The Mutual Bank has continued its commitment to engaging with the education community through the creation of a future Director opportunities initiative. The Directors value diversity of experience, skills and thought on our Board as we continue to serve our Members. The Board understands the value of drawing on the competencies and expertise of leading educators and identifying opportunities to prepare educators for potential Board roles within the education sector or with us.
With that in mind and led by our Chair, the Board recently facilitated an engagement opportunity with leading educators where we discussed the Mutual Bank’s ongoing connection to you our Members and more broadly the Education community. A key element evolving out of this engagement was the identification and announcement of the next initiative to support the development of an educator in 2016.
This exciting initiative will enable potential future Directors a development pathway. Our investment will be delivered through the provision of a scholarship that enables the successful applicant to undertake the highly regarded Company Directors Course facilitated by the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD). This course has become the prerequisite education for directors on many Boards.
We are pleased to announce that following an assessment of high calibre candidates, Kate Morris, Principal of Northcote Secondary College is the successful scholarship recipient. The Mutual Bank looks forward to continuing our relationship with Kate and hearing about her experiences when she has completed the AICD program.
