Call for applications for appointment to the Registration and Notification Committee of the Occupational Therapy Board of Australia

The Occupational Therapy Board of Australia (the National Board) invites applications from registered occupational therapists seeking appointment to the Registration and Notification Committee (RNC).

Appointments will initially be for one year, with eligibility for reappointment for up to three years. If appointed to the role, you would be expected to commence in October 2017.

You will be required to develop detailed knowledge of the National Law, the registration standards, codes and guidelines for the National Board, practice standards and other professional regulatory requirements.
