The Traditional Music Forum (TMF) is seeking new trustees to join the organisation’s Board of Directors.
The main responsibilities of the Board include governance, advocacy, strategic direction, as well as ensuring the legal and ethical commitments and standards of the organisation are met.
Meetings are held quarterly and are either online or in person. In person meetings are usually held in Perth, as it is suitable for all our current trustees’ domestic locations.
The role of trustee is voluntary and the TMF will refund any reasonable travel costs to attend Board meetings.
We are a welcoming and friendly organisation and information about the current trustees, staff and the work of the TMF can be found on our website.

We would also welcome applications from those aged between 18-30 years old.
