Call for nominations
Living Positive Victoria’s mission is to enable and empower all people affected by and living with HIV to be part of a response that seeks an end to the HIV epidemic. A strong and effective board will keep people living with HIV at the forefront of the response. This will require a dedicated team to align with the vision of the 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.
The board and staff of Living Positive Victoria are guided by the following values:
Dignity – We are proud of who we are, where we have come from, and the path we are leading.
Innovation – We are agile in our responsiveness to the needs of our community, effecting change from within.
Respect – We respect and support our members’ autonomy over their individual life-decisions and experiences.
Diversity – We support, and in turn are strengthened by, our community’s diversity and their confidence to express it in all aspects of life.
This is a fantastic opportunity for inspirational leaders who have a genuine passion for advancing the rights of people living with HIV.
Nominations are now open and close at 11:59pm on Thursday 17 September 2020. There are a total of three (3) positions available for election.
