Korfball Australia is seeking a new President and Secretary to oversee KA during 2019 – 2021. The President and Secretary will be appointed during the Annual General Meeting at the National Championships at Maitland on the 5th of October. A call for nominations for President and Secretary will be made in mid August.

We seek to have a President and Secretary who are able to take a national korfball perspective where all groups are considered with social as well as competitive aspirations and are keen to
guide us towards being recognized as a national sport.

The next two or three years are going to be very exciting and important in our development as we establish across at least four states and regain our recognition as a national sport opening up
many opportunities for support including government support.

  • chairs Executive Committee (EC) meetings
  • carries out additional duties to maintain relations with member associations and international sporting bodies
