Call for nominations

As Living Positive Victoria celebrates 30 years of advocacy and community partnership we are looking for passionate people to continue responding to the emerging issues and changing demographics in the HIV epidemic in Victoria.

A strong and effective board will keep people living with HIV at the forefront of the response. This will require a passionate team to align with the vision of your organisation to see a world where people living with HIV live their lives to their full potential, in good health and free from discrimination.

Beyond ensuring the good governance of the organisation, elected Directors will play a significant role overseeing the implementation of our Strategic Plan 2018 and Beyond, as well as supporting staff, volunteers and stakeholders through new opportunities and challenges as we advocate for the health and wellbeing of the HIV community in Victoria.

This is a terrific opportunity for strong leaders who have a genuine passion for advancing the rights of people living with HIV.
