Elections and AGM

Every year, PWDA members elect a Board of people with disability who lead our organisation. The elections are held between September and October, and our AGM is held in November.

This year’s AGM will be on November 21 – find out all the details on this page.

The Board of Directors of PWDA is the voice of our members.  The Board’s job is to speak with and for people with disability and to govern the organisation.

PWDA is a large organisation with many staff and responsibilities.  Our work includes advocacy, representation and implementing projects.  We also raise awareness, including through the media, about issues facing people with different kinds of disability across Australia as well as overseas.

The members of PWDA elect Directors to represent them to lead the organisation. The Directors do this by:

  • Ensuring we are the voice of and for people with disability;
  • Setting strategic goals and a way forward;
  • Making sure our money is spent wisely; and
  • Employing staff to do our work.
