Living Positive Victoria is embarking on the development of a new Strategic Plan for 2017 – 2020 and we’re looking for board members who are excited by what we do and have a desire to actively contribute to Living Positive Victoria’s future. Those who are part of the Board of Directors (BoD) will play a significant role in overseeing the development of this Plan in addition to ensuring the organisation remains viable to serve our members and the HIV community.

The current Living Positive BoD is comprised of a diverse group of HIV service providers, community members, and professionals. This interim BoD, which was put in place to support and facilitate the merger of Living Positive Victoria and Straight Arrows, will be winding down in the next few months. Although we have achieved much, we require capable and committed people to help navigate the short and long term strategic challenges and opportunities.

We are now seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from candidates with passion, vision and energy to fill upcoming vacancies and help us enrich our programs and services to members.

What does a Living Positive Victoria Board member look like?

  1. Have a passion for the wellbeing and advancement of rights for people living with HIV
  2. Commitment to strategic planning and working collectively to achieve goals
  3. A decision and policy maker for the organisation
  4. Utilize personal and professional skills, relationships and knowledge for the advancement of Living Positive Victoria.

Please note: All board members must be Members of Living Positive Victoria. Membership with Living Positive Victoria is not based solely on HIV status. Read our membership options for full details.
