Games Venue

& Legacy Delivery

Authority Board

Ensuring the stage is set for Queensland

to host a successful Olympic and Paralympic

Games and create a positive legacy for the future.

When the Olympic and Paralympic Games come to Queensland in 2032 it will be a defi ning moment in history. A Games Venue & Legacy Delivery Authority (GVLDA) has been established to ensure the eff ective planning and delivery of venues to host Games events and ensure an ongoing positive legacy for communities right across the State. The GVLDA will also coordinate government obligations in relation to hosting the Games. Applications for Board Directors who will make the decisions that ensure this global event is a success are now being sought.

The GVLDA is a Queensland Government statutory body established under legislation operating at arms-length from government. It will work with key government, industry, and business partners to deliver the billion-dollar venues program on time and on budget. The GVLDA will be governed by an independent Board that is responsible for the oversight of the GVLDA. A high-profi le Board working within a complex stakeholder environment, directors will be inspired by the opportunity to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime event and its ongoing legacy.

The Board will consist of up to seven independent directors, including the Chair. Seeking a diverse mix of skills, background and experience, the directors will collectively bring strong leadership, commercial, strategic, fi nancial, and project management expertise, as well as backgrounds across social and/or transport infrastructure, program delivery, major sporting events, legacy and benefi ts realisation, accessibility, regions and regional development, sustainability, First Nations people and business, procurement and supply chain, and government.

Directors will be people of high repute and integrity, with corporate governance experience, strong stakeholder engagement skills, and understand obtaining social licence and connecting with communities. They will have a connection to Queensland, be independent (and not tied to competing stakeholder interests) and have suffi cient capacity to contribute eff ectively to the Board.

With a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, the Selection Panel encourages all qualifi ed candidates to apply.
