AGM Notice and Board Elections

Updated September 16 2022. 


The 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the Western Australian Turf Club (trading as Perth Racing) will be held at 5:00pm on Monday, 17 October 2022 at Ascot Racecourse.

The terms of office for the following Directors will expire in 2022:

  • Mr Evan Stewart (is eligible for re-election for a second elected term)

There is one (1) Elected Director vacancy to be filled. Nominations for election must be received by the Club Secretary by 5:00pm on Thursday, 15 September 2022.  All nominees must submit a signed and dated nomination form that can be obtained from Perth Racing.

Please note, nominations have now closed. 

To be nominated, the candidate must be:
1) Over the age of 18;
2) An ordinary, financial member of the Club for at least the past 18 months; and
3) Not a steward or Board member of Racing and Wagering Western Australia or any other race club, trotting club or greyhound racing club, unless the Board, in its absolute discretion, determines otherwise.

Please note that Directors are expected to attend monthly Board meetings as well as various Committee and Special Meetings throughout their term, which is for a period of three years. Their involvement is a governance role not a management one, and as such an understanding of Board procedures and governance is preferred. The Board of Perth Racing operate at a highly professional level with corporate and commercial leadership and strategic skills. Directors should be free from conflicts of interest, have an interest in horse racing and be able to contribute to the Board diversity.

The Board, as it moves to implement its strategic plan, has reviewed the skills required around the boardroom table to progress the organisation, with particular emphasis on the areas of property development, infrastructure and asset management, digital technology and media.

Should more than one (1) nomination be received, an election will be required. In this event, an online ballot will be conducted by Computershare, with voting details emailed to all voting members on Monday, 19 September 2022.

For the small number of voting members who have not registered an email address with the Club, ballot papers will be posted to their address on Monday, 19 September 2022.

Each candidate may provide a synopsis (maximum of 1,000 words) to be submitted with their Nomination Form, which will be circulated to the members with the voting material.

No written communication or election materials from candidates are to be distributed on the course to the members.

For further information regarding the election process, please contact Stefanie Thomas, Executive Assistant on or 9277 0720. If required, a meeting with an Elected Director can be arranged.
