Autism Queensland values the contributions made by all people and believes this diversity strengthens its mission and governance.
To formalise this process we are establishing an Advisory Committee to ensure we are aware of the issues that are important to people on the autism spectrum and their families in Queensland.
This committee will provide independent, impartial advice to our Board of Directors, Executive Leadership Team, Senior Management and Professional Practice Team about our organisational strategies and services.
We invite expressions of interest by people from diverse backgrounds with direct experience of living with autism as individuals or family members/carers to join the Committee.
Your commitment would include but is not exclusive to the following:
- Capacity to meet at least four times each year, via web-conference.
- Membership of two years in the first instance (eligibility to extend for a further two years, maximum of six years total membership).
- One member of the Committee to be elected as a Chairperson (12 month appointment).
- Members may receive occasional requests for consideration outside scheduled meetings.
If you are interested in joining this committee, please submit an expression of interest via the link below.
Please note: Applications close 31 May 2021. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview (in-person or via video conference). Further information about the committee will also be provided prior to this interview.
