Each year, current ACHSM members based in NSW are invited to consider nominating for a position on the Branch Council. As ACHSM is the the peak professional body for health managers and executives in Australasia, Branch Councillors can directly contribute to supporting the organisation’s mission statement:
To be a leader in professional growth and development
Develop, equip and support high-performing health, community and aged care leaders to deliver quality services and improve community health and wellbeing.
April is usually the time that the NSW Branch Council retires a third of its councillors and commences a process to invite Branch members to lodge an expression of interest to become a Branch Councillor. In accordance with the ACHSM rules (clause 7.3.6), retiring Branch Councillors are eligible for re-election.
In light of the enormous disruptions caused by COVID-19, and the significant impact the virus is having on the workloads of many ACHSM members, a decision has been taken to extend the tenure of Branch Councillors whose three year terms are due to expire in 2020.
The length of the extension will be reviewed in the second half of 2020, and members will be notified of a new schedule at a suitable time.
Any enquiries about this issue can be directed to NSW Executive Officer, Kate Leonard at email@example.com.
