ACNP National Board of Directors Election 2022

By  Leanne Boase

The ACNP is led by a National Board of Directors with a National Council advising on key regional and strategic issues facing Nurse Practitioners and the membership. The nominations for the appointment of the ACNP Board of Directors are open. Nominations will close on the 3rd June 2022 (11.59pm AEST).  TIME IS RUNNING OUT.

As the President of the College for the past 3.5 years, I would like to encourage all full members to give nominating for a Board position serious consideration.  Our current Board has a wealth of experience, and have been instrumental in making significant changes and advances for the College, and for any new Board member joining us now, this is an amazing opportunity to transition and learn in a supported way.

It is important to realise that the Board must undergo regular changes, with 2 new Board members being elected each year, so that we do not have a full Board changeover in any one year.  This is important for continuity and continued growth of the College.  The number of consecutive terms for Board members are also limited, so it is important that we follow a continual process of change, support, training and transition. 

This is a great opportunity to learn new skills, and engage in your profession and the business of the College at a higher level.

  1. Any full member (AHPRA-endorsed Nurse Practitioners) shall be eligible to serve as an elected Director of the ACNP Board.
