Following the merge of LASA’s state-based organisations back in 2016, the LASA Board of Directors is calling for nominations of eligible persons to contribute to the dynamic aged care system for older Australians and LASA Members.
Under the LASA Constitution Clause 26.1, a Multi-state Director is a position appointed by a Board of members, and those nominating must be an Officer (e.g. CEO, CFO, senior executive) of a Member with operations in at least three states or territories of Australia.
Nominees must also be from an organisation that is a Member of LASA in the 2018/19 year, meet the conditions set by Australian Securities & Investment Commission (ASIC) and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), and give their consent to be nominated.
Dr Graeme Blackman, Chair of LASA, says the position is an exciting opportunity to contribute to an authoritative national organisation and make an impact on its future.
“We represent large residential aged care providers with in excess of 3,000 beds, small and medium not-for-profit, and church and charitable providers, as well as organisations providing in home care and offering retirement living options for older Australians,” he says.
“LASA is well placed to lead our industry as we navigate continuing policy reform, regulatory changes, increasing demand, disruptive technologies and business models, changes to government funding, rising operating costs, and the complex and changing needs and expectations of consumers.”
The LASA Board is looking for candidates with industry knowledge and a passion for aged care. They’re also looking for a strategic thinker, with previous experience on a Board highly regarded.
Nominations for this position close 5pm, Wednesday 12 September. More information on the process, along with contact information, can be found here.
LASA has determined that the term of this position will be three years.
