Seeking expressions of interest for two Honorary Community Membership positions
The Australasian Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AusACPDM) is committed to involving people with cerebral palsy and other childhood onset disability and their families. Towards this aim, we are inviting people with cerebral palsy and other childhood onset disabilities and their families (community members) to join as members of the Academy with a reduced membership fee.
We are also seeking expressions of interest from people with cerebral palsy and other childhood onset disabilities and family to fill two volunteer positions to work with us to develop the Academy’s activities to be accessible and inclusive. We have included more information on the roles and on submitting an expression of interest if you would like to be considered for one of these positions. The people who undertake these positions will receive honorary (fee-free) membership to recognise their important contribution to the Academy.
