Nominations open for six NQPHN board vacancies

Published 10 October 2022

Qualified applicants sought for skills-based directorships


Northern Queensland Primary Health Network (NQPHN) is pleased to announce that the board is seeking applications from people to become board directors and who have the qualifications, knowledge, experience, and attributes that will contribute to the organisation achieving its vision of northern Queenslanders living happier, healthier, longer lives.

Co-chairs Tara Diversi and Ben Tooth said Expressions of Interest (EOIs) were being sought for qualified applicants to fill six upcoming vacancies that were skills-based and would complement the three directors who were not required to re-nominate.

They said the vacancies had arisen because of standard director rotation and election in accordance with the Company’s Constitution and the formal appointment of casual vacancies throughout the year.

“They are all at the end of a term of appointment and are all eligible to renominate but are required to go through the formal renomination process,” said Ms Diversi and Mr Tooth.

“It is somewhat unusual, but we have several directors filling casual vacancies that are required to go through the formal renomination process.

“We welcome nominations from people in the community who believe they have the skills to join our board.

“The board is committed to supporting diversity and welcomes applications from people with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, LGBTIQ, and/or culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds, and from people living with disabilities.”

The directors not required to re-nominate are Ms Diversi, Gurriny Yealamucka Health Service Chief Executive Officer Sue Andrews and MacDonnells Law director Luckbir Singh.

Applications will be considered and reviewed by the NQPHN Nomination and Remuneration Committee, shortlisted applicants will be interviewed, and the recommended applicants will be considered for appointment at a General Meeting of NQPHN Members in November 2022.
