Leading up to its Annual General Meeting (AGM) the Southern African Music Rights Organisation NPC (SAMRO) invites members to submit their nominations for the organisation’s Board of Directors.

SAMRO members are hereby given notice that the call for Board of Director nominations are now open from, 29 September and  will close on 12 October 2015

Prior to submitting their nominations, SAMRO members are encouraged to make an informed decision by familiarising themselves with the criteria processes and requirements for one to be eligible for a nomination. Once the nominators have familiarised themselves with the submission procedures, they will be required to complete a nomination form which will have to be sent back to SAMRO.

In nominating a candidate to serve in the SAMRO Board of Directors, it is important to select a nominee that meets the legislative requirements in terms of the Companies Act of South Africa. The nominee submitted must also have the ability to act in the best interests of the organisation and its members.

It’s important to note that only an individual who is a full member of SAMRO can be nominated to serve in the Board of Directors. A non-member will only be considered in the exceptional case where the individual possesses special knowledge, skills and/or experience relevant to performing the role and functions of a Director.

The ideal candidate should have in-depth knowledge of the music industry and must be influential in the music industry, demonstrating an understanding of music copyright. 

They must also have an understanding of the regulatory framework in which the music industry operates and general knowledge of SAMRO as a royalty collecting society.

For any queries, question or further information please contact the Group Company Secretary by sending an email to secretary@samro.org.za or call 011 712 8000.

Nominations for the SAMRO Board of Directors will close on Monday, 12 October 2015 at 16h00. No late nominations will be accepted after the 16h00 deadline.
