While time commitment varies depending on the board, you should consider 4 to 11 meetings throughout the year, of varying lengths, from 2hrs to a whole day, plus 2-4 hours of pre reading per meeting and approximately 33 hours of professional development provided by The Observership Program. You may also be asked to join additional meetings, such as committee meetings and Strategy and Planning Day meetings. Meetings may happen after hours (after 5:00pm or on weekends).

There are up to ten training sessions during the year, held face to face n the CBD or via online. Timing for face to face sessions are 5.30pm arrival for a 6.00pm start, finishing by 8.30pm. Online sessions commence at 6.00pm until 7.30pm.

Participation in the Program requires attendance at all training sessions, board and any other relevant meetings to which you have committed.
