Lodging a nomination

Before lodging a nomination for membership of an ISC, please read the documents below, linked to the buttons.

Nominees are not required to meet all the selection criteria, but should have significant, relevant skills, and industry sector knowledge and experience.

ISC members are expected to be able to speak on behalf of the invited organisation and to provide input on key decisions.

ISC membership

Nominations are now being sought for ISC membership - complete the application form if you are nominated by an invited organisation, or if you are invited to nominate as an individual.

We ask that you do not forward this information to a person not considered to be a nominee for the invited organisation.

Please note that ISC membership is on a voluntary basis and is not remunerated. ISC meetings will be held quarterly, with out-of-session engagement as opportunities arise.

Nominations should be submitted via the online form by 11:59pm ACDT, Friday, 19 January 2024.

Next steps

The Skills Commissioner and the Chair of each ISC will consider nominations, to decide the appropriate membership taking into consideration the diversity of South Australia’s industries and the skills and abilities of nominees. All nominees will be advised of the outcome in early February 2024.

Successful nominees will be asked to attend an all ISC induction on Thursday 29 February 2024.
