Expressions of Interest for STAL Committees

John Gradisar, Wednesday, 25 November 2015

To facilitate the continuing development of Taekwondo in Australia STAL is now in a position to call for Expressions of Interest from our members to assist on the Committees.

At this point we are calling for Expressions of Interest for the eight Committees outlined below:

Committee Name Purpose
Kyorugi Referee Attraction, retention, development and education of Sparring Referees
Kyorugi Coaching Attraction, retention, development and education of Sparring Coaches
Kyorugi Performance Pathway and High Performance Management for Sparring
Poomsae Officiating Attraction, retention, development and education of Poomsae Judges/ Officials
Poomsae Coaching Attraction, retention, development and education of Poomsae Coaches
Poomsae Performance Pathway and High Performance Management for Poomsae
Events Development and organisation of Taekwondo Events
Calendar Development and publication of National Calendar (inc overseas ‘open’ events

This is not a final list of all of the committees, but the ones that you as Members have indicated are the most important at this time.

A Generic Charter to be adapted for each Committee has been developed and a copy can be found below.  Thanks must go to the Poomsae Working Group and the Kyorugi Referee Working Group for all of their hard work in developing the Generic Charter.  This Charter not only outlines the Mission, Role and Responsibilities of the Committee but also ensures that all of our committees are selected and run under best practice governance principles.

Some of the committee charters are currently close to being finalised and the remaining charters will be finalised by the Committees once selected .

If you are interested in being on a committee please download the Expression of Interest (EOI) form which can be found bleow, complete it and then email it to  In the email Subject Header please put the name of the committee you are interested in.

Expressions will close at 6:00 pm AEDST on Sunday 6 December 2015.  All EOI’s will be sent to the selection panel (currently the STAL Board) and the successful members will be informed shortly after.  All committee members will be required to sign a Code of Conduct and Declaration of Acceptance.

A copy of the approved Strategic Plan 2015-2020 can be downloaded from the link below as a guide to the future direction of Taekwondo in Australia.

If you know of anyone who you think would be a good committee member please encourage them to submit an EOI.
