Leading men’s health body seeks new President
The Australian Men’s Health Forum is seeking a new President to serve on its board and steward the organisation into the next stage of its development.
Having recently secured three years of funding under the Commonwealth Government’s Health Peak Advisory Body program, our longest-serving board member is preparing to step down from the President’s role. As part of succession planning, we are now looking to strengthen our Board by recruiting an independent President, with a strong profile among our key stakeholders, to help grow AMHF’s influence and strengthen our impact.
Any candidates who want to be considered for this role will need proven Board leadership and governance experience, particularly within purpose-driven organisations. They will also need to have the skills, contacts and confidence to engage with the media, the corporate sector and key politicians and policy makers.
The Australian Men’s Health Forum (AMHF) is the peak body for people working to improve the lives and health of men and boys in Australia. It traces its history back to the first National Men’s Health conference in 1995 and has evolved from a voluntary organisation to a registered charity with a growing membership, run by a team of dedicated professionals.
The focus of AMHF’s work is to connect and support the men’s health sector; champion male-friendly approaches to working with men; provide resources that raise knowledge and awareness of men’s health issues and advocate for Government policies and actions that improve men and boys’ health.
The role of President is voluntary and will require the right candidate to work closely with our CEO and Board, including our outgoing President who will continue to serve on the board.
