Call for applications for appointment to the Optometry Board of Australia

15 Jan 2021

There are multiple practitioner member and community member vacancies arising on the Optometry Board of Australia.

Registered practitioners may also wish to express interest in the role of Board Chair.

All appointments are made by the Health Council (the Ministerial Council) per the Health Practitioner Regulation National Law, as in force in each state and territory (the National Law).

Ahpra is committed to increasing diversity and social inclusion on National Boards. Applications are encouraged from people with a disability, people who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LGBTQI and people from culturally diverse backgrounds.

More information about the roles, eligibility requirements and the application process can be found within the online application form via Ahpra’s Board member recruitment page.

Visit the Board member recruitment page to watch a video compilation from two recent Q&A webinar sessions, featuring current Board members discussing what is involved and what life is like as a board member.

If you have questions, please contact the Ahpra statutory appointments team via email:  statutoryappointments@ahpra.gov.au.


Note:

  • Practitioner members - state or territory eligibility requirements apply. If a state or territory is not included in this round it is because a member from this state is already appointed to serve a current term on the National Board.
  • Community members may be from any state or territory – there are no jurisdictional eligibility requirements.
