Friends of the Alliance is currently looking for a Friend in South Australia who would be interested in participating on the Friends Advisory Committee.
Friends of the Alliance is a network of people and organisations that support the work of the National Rural Health Alliance and the Friends Advisory Committee is comprised of individual Friends from each State and Territory.
Friends provide valuable grassroots connections to help the Alliance better understand the health issues affecting the lives of rural and remote Australians. Their support helps improve the health of the more than 6.7 million people in rural and remote Australia.
One of the two SA Friends on the Friends Advisory Committee recently moved to another State - so we're looking for nominations from South Australia to take his place for the remainder of the current term.
The Alliance looks to the Friends Advisory Committee for enthusiasm and ideas for the Friends events at the biennial National Rural Health Conferences - the next will be in Darwin, 2015, editorial support for the Alliance's magazine, Partyline; and much more. The Chair of Friends provides a direct link from the Advisory Committee to Council of the Alliance.
If you are a Friend (or would like to be) living in SA and believe that you could make a contribution to the Friends Advisory Committee, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations close 30 May 2014.
