TWA is a not-for-profit organisation which is governed by the Board of TWA. TWA is one of eight (8) State Associations, which make up the membership of the national body, AusTriathlon.

TWA’s vision is to inspire Western Australians to embrace triathlon as a lifestyle, recreation or sporting pursuit and we will do this by growing, strengthening and connecting the triathlon community through membership, clubs, programs and major events.

TWA has a Board of up to five elected and four appointed directors, who set the strategic direction and oversee the organisation. The Board is made up of both TWA members and independent individuals, who have a range of qualifications, skills and experience and encompass diversity in aspects such as gender, age, background and perspective. This supports best practice as outlined in the Australia Sports Commission’s Sport Governance Principles. In addition to the Board, there is a team of staff, led by the Executive Director, who are employed by Triathlon WA.

The Board is seeking to rebuild the Committee structure that supports the work of the organisation. Each of the Committees has a defined Terms of Reference, including the roles and responsibilities of the Committee.

The Committees will tend to meet 3-4 times per year, in line with key events or timeframes of the Board.
