Register Now for Board-led member discussions on possible constitutional changes

The IAHA Board of Directors, with support from the Secretariat, will be hosting several interactive discussions with members on proposed changes to the IAHA Constitution and other strategic priorities.

Among the discussion points will be changes to the IAHA Constitution to:

  • Revise the IAHA membership structure to ensure resources are supporting the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander allied health workforce most effectively; and
  • Increase the Quorum requirement for meetings to ensure that decision making is representative of the membership as IAHA continues to grow.

A proposal to develop a wholly owned subsidiary of IAHA in the Northern Territory to support existing initiatives in the NT and to open further strategic opportunities will also be discussed

The one-hour consultations which take place on the following dates and times, with different groups of the membership, to ensure that we cover off on the issues most relevant to members:

  • 28 April at 6pm for Full Members
  • 5 May at 1pm for Full Members
  • 6 May at 1pm for non-Indigenous Associate Members
  • 11 May at 6pm for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Associate Members

We understand that members may not be able to attend at these times, and all consultations will be made available on a dedicated page on the IAHA website, along with answers to any frequently asked questions.

The Secretariat will also host a briefing for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student members of IAHA – to explain the structure and functioning of IAHA as an organisation – prior to the first consultation on 28 April. More information on this will be sent directly to student members.

If you have any questions you would like to put to the Board, please email secretary@iaha.com.au and these will be answered within the consultation, via the FAQs and/or through the IAHA Secretariat.

To register to attend one of these sessions, please email the IAHA Secretariat on comms@iaha.com.au with your preferred session.
