Interested in joining the Future Strategic Leaders' Program Committee?
The Institute for Regional Security (IFRS) is calling for expressions of interest to join the 2018/19 Future Strategic Leaders' Program (FSLP) Committee.
The FSLP Committee is a group of young professionals, including students, engaged and/or working in the national security community with a strong interest in developing the professional skills of the next generation of Australia’s national security leaders. The role of the FSLP Committee is to assist in the planning and organising of events in support of IFRS. The program consists of seminars, retreat-style congresses, social networking functions, careers advice, and other special events, with opportunities to engage with senior Australian national security officials and leaders.
We are looking for a number of volunteers, from big thinkers with ideas for the future, to those who are interested in actioning things, managing events and implementing ideas. Time commitments can vary from 1-10 hours a week depending on the portfolio and the time of year.

Sub-committee members – including sub-committee leads – will need to attend meetings of their particular sub-committee, and executive meetings where relevant, and assist in the organising of events in their portfolio as required. They will also be expected to regularly attend FSLP and IFRS events more broadly, assist with other sub-committees' work when necessary, engage and network with other members of the FSLP committee, and represent the IFRS in a professional manner at all events.
So you know
Once you have submitted your expression of interest, it will be screened for shortlisting by current committee members. Shortlisted nominees will then be invited to attend an FSLP Meet & Greet (date/time to be advised). The final result will be advised in the days following the Meet & Greet.
It is also expected that successful candidates will take out standard membership with IFRS.
