Nominating or supporting the nomination of a candidate to Australian Catholic Superannuation’s Board of Trustee Directors is an important opportunity for you to have a say in how your super is managed.

What does the Trustee Board do?

SCS Super Pty Limited (ACN 064 712 607) is the Trustee of the Australian Catholic Superannuation & Retirement Fund.

The Trustee Board oversees the management of the Fund and its investments in order to return the maximum possible retirement benefits to members while safeguarding the long-term security of members’ assets.

There are 12 seats on the Trustee Board comprising an equal representation of six Member Representative and six Employer Representative Directors.

This Trustee Election process is being conducted to fill the six Member Representative Director positions once their current term of office concludes on 30 June 2019.

For further details in relation to Director responsibilities and legal requirements refer to the Role and duties of Trustee Directors

Call for nominations

The first stage of the Fund’s Trustee Election process is the Call for Nominations from candidates wishing to stand for the six Member Representative Director positions available across three Electoral Divisions:

- 4 positions in NSW/ACT; 1 position in QLD; 1 position in WA. 

The next four-year term of office will be for the period from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2023.

We encourage current Fund members to not only vote, but also to stand as candidates for election if they believe they have the knowledge, skills and background required to undertake such a role for the future benefit of their fellow members. 

Existing Member Representative Directors are also eligible to stand for re-election.

The call for nominations closes on Monday, 26 November 2018 at 5:00 pm AEDT.

If more eligible members are nominated than there are positions available in any of the three Electoral Divisions listed above, an election will be held in each of those Electoral Divisions. If required, an election will be held in the first quarter of 2019.
