Positions which are becoming vacant this year include:
- One non-doctor board member with a focus on financial management
- Up to 3 doctor members including one doctor in training position

- Ability to work collaboratively within a team
- Creativity with courage and enthusiasm to utilise your talents for new endeavors
- Capacity for leadership
