Changes to electorates
There are multiple changes within electorates which, as noted above, include:
- Merger of 2 electorates under Group A (FETS and Potts Hill).
- Creation of 4 new electorates under Group A (CTST/PTSC, Public Affairs/Recruitment, SIC/SCC).
- Merging of 12 former electorates into 6 under Group B (All Station Staff, Traffic & Highway Patrol and Firearms Registry).
- Deletion of Parramatta Headquarters electorate under Group B with redistribution amongst 3 other electorates (2 in Group A, and 1 in Group B).
The reasons for the changes are to consolidate the electorates and ensure members are adequately represented in line with current ways of working within NSWPF (i.e., by relevant Commands rather than physical location – a majority of members no longer necessarily attend one location or do hybrid work).
The above changes and reasons provided have been endorsed by the current NSWPF Departmental Committee.
Nominations and closing date
Nominees, nominators, and seconders must be financial members of the Association as at COB 26 JUNE 2023.
Nominations must be submitted via the following Survey Monkey link by COB 20 July 2023.
If there is a ballot, candidates who wish to have a profile available for voters to read should provide a brief statement of 300 words or less stating how they will best represent members’ interests.
