Board of Directors (Volunteer) – Expressions of Interest

Lady Gowrie Tasmania (LGT) is a not-for-profit community-based organisation that delivers a wide footprint of education and care services across Tasmania. In addition to education and care services, LGT also delivers a range of support services both in the education and care sector, as well as to Tasmanian children and families.

LGT also operates a Registered Training Organisation, delivering qualifications to both LGT and external workforce in education and care qualifications. We also deliver external training and consulting services to the education and care sector.

Operating for over 80 years, as part of an informal network of six Lady Gowrie organisations around Australia, we have a long history of delivering quality education and care services to children and families and in the family support space.

The LGT Board of Directors are a volunteer Board who are now looking to grow their membership and to seek applicants for possible future vacancies.

The Board currently has 8 members, and includes a Chair, a Vice-Chair and Sub-Committee Chairs. The Public Officer role is currently undertaken by the CEO. The LGT constitution allows up to a maximum of 13 members including the Chair and Deputy Chair.

Whilst we are seeking applications from people who have some Governance experience there are three specific areas of skills that we are interested in hearing from people with: 

  • Early childhood education and educational leadership
  • Strategic people and culture skills
  • Finance

If you are interested in a confidential discussion about the Board of Lady Gowrie Tasmania please contact the CEO, Mr Mat Rowell, for an initial discussion on 0439 370 256 or email

A Board Sub-Committee process will formally progress a recruitment process and nominations to the Board.
