SA Governor visits RFDS December 2022 9

The Governor has a role in promoting South Australia and South Australian organisations by undertaking activities that promote, encourage and recognise South Australians across a wide range of community interest. The acceptance of Vice-Regal patronage from organisations and events which aim to improve the lives of South Australians is the principal way in which this support is extended.

The Governor and Mr Bunten are patrons to more than 150 community groups in South Australia. They support and promote organisations involved in voluntary service, industry, education, the arts, sport and caring for those in need.

Organisations wishing to invite the Governor, the Governor and Mr Bunten, or Mr Bunten to accept patronage or another honorary appointment should make a request in writing.

  • Background information about the organisation;
  • A copy of the organisation’s Constitution and latest annual financial report;
  • Details about the authorisation of the request (such as at an Annual General Meeting or by the executive);
  • The organisation’s expectations of the Patron;
  • Whether the Governor, Mr Bunten, or both, are sought as patrons.

As a general guide, Vice Regal patronage may be appropriate if an organisation has a South Australian-wide focus, conducts business on a not-for-profit basis and relates to the patrons’ interests or professional experience.
