The work of the MAA is growing and expanding rapidly with Government and Industry seeking us out for community engagement feedback. Opportunities to develop services and research for the MG community are opening up. The MAA need manpower to take up everything that is offered. NSW now have 4 representatives on the Board but Queensland cannot match this and we need to step up.
If you have a passion to bring about change, if you have health or industry experience, this could be an exciting addition to your interests. It is not necessary for you to have Myasthenia.
What is required?
An interested person will need to become a member of the MGAQ Committee. This committee meets 9 times per year, via ZOOM, teleconference or in person. Travel costs are supported. The sub-committee role of MAA Board member is then taken. The MAA meets solely via ZOOM or teleconference and communicates very effectively via email. Meetings times are by mutual agreement and occur approximately each 6-8 weeks. The MGAQ are now preparing nominations for the 2021 AGM.
Please do phone Susan on 1800 802 568 if you can help or would like further information. We can accommodate two new members so don’t think someone else will volunteer – we need you.
