Committee member recruitment

Under the National Law, National Boards may delegate functions to a committee of the National Board. Committee appointments are made by the National Board under which the committee is formed.

How to join a committee

AHPRA (on behalf of the National Boards) from time to time invites applications from practitioners and members of the community to be added to these committees.

When a vacancy is identified, AHPRA invites interested persons to apply and details are published on this website.
