Our Board and staff

AHPA has an important strategic leadership role in the allied health sector. Our work is informed and guided by our experienced Board and supported by a small and dedicated team of staff.

Our Board

The AHPA Board is responsible for governing the organisation.

The AHPA Board currently has eight Directors, with seven Directors being nominated from member organisations and subsequently elected, and one independent Director. The Chair, the Deputy Chair and the Chair of the Finance and Audit Committee make up the ‘executive’ of the Board. The Board meets at least four times a year.

The Board is supported by two sub-committees:

  • Finance and Audit Committee
  • Governance and Risk Committee

Our Staff

AHPA’s team of dedicated staff work closely with the Board as well as with staff in the individual allied health member associations in support of the goals of the organisation. AHPA is further supported by the work of volunteers and freelance staff where projects require additional support.
