The Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA®) seeks Expressions of Interest (EOI) from members to join the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander committee.
Who we are:
AHPA is the only member-driven professional association specifically for people interested or involved in the practice, policy, research, and study of health promotion.
AHPA’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander committee is responsible for providing coordination and leadership of AHPA initiatives that support and promote the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The committee is currently co-chaired by Jenny Philip-Harbutt (AHPA Director and Company Secretary, and Associate Professor Michelle Dickson (Darkinjung/Ngarigo, AHPA Director, NSW/ACT Branch Vice President). Meetings are monthly and the committee reports to the AHPA Board. The current focus is the development of AHPA’s first national Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
AHPA is seeking EOIs from interested Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous AHPA members to join the committee.
How to submit an EOI:
To apply please submit:
- A short statement about yourself, including your full name, who your mob is/your connection to Country (for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander AHPA members), your state/territory, whether you are on a branch committee, contact number and email.
- A short written statement describing:
- why you would like to join the committee
- any specific skills or attributes that you bring and your availability to participate.
EOIs will be assessed by a panel of three people who are members of the AHPA Board and the Board’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander committee. Panel members will include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous members and conflicts of interest will be disclosed (if any).
