MPA is the largest melanoma patient advocacy group in Australia and the only independent, national charity in Australia that offers a national network of support and information to patients, their families, carers, and friends, about melanoma prevention, diagnosis, management and treatment. Our vision is that no-one with melanoma walks alone.
MPA is seeking new voluntary members for the Consumer Advisory Group. Working with the CEO and senior management, you will provide a powerful voice for people affected by melanoma across Australia and help MPA determine key strategic priorities and an advocacy action plan.
Members provide advice and feedback to the MPA Board and help to advocate on a range of issues important to those affected by melanoma to enable MPA to influence policy changes that benefit the melanoma community.
As a well-established Consumer Advisory Group, we are specifically looking for a range of skills to help us deliver on an exciting strategic agenda for the next five years. To be successful in the role, you need to meet the following selection criteria.
Members need to have the capacity to devote time and energy to the role of a voluntary Consumer Advisory Group member. This means attending quarterly meetings, preparing and reading documents in advance of meetings, contributing to discussions and completing any agreed tasks, within the skills and capacity of the member. On average, this requires input of around 7 hours each quarter.
It is important that members have experience working on committees and representing the interests and perspectives of consumers. It is preferred but not essential, that members have previous experience as a member of an advocacy group or consumer advisory panel relating to cancer or other health issue.
Please send a cover letter explaining your suitability for the role addressing the criteria above with your CV to email@example.com by midnight Sunday 14 August 2022.
If you have any questions, contact Barbara on 0413 842 284.
MPA would not be able to provide its support services without its volunteers.
The members of the MPA Board, the support group facilitators, the regional advocates, the people who help at conferences, fundraising events and awareness days and others willing to share their stories are all volunteers. They have all been impacted by melanoma in some way and want to give back and make a difference.
We have a place for you too, no skills or experience required, just a willingness to give your time and energy to help out so that MPA can continue to provide much needed support and information to the thousands of Australians affected by melanoma each year.
