Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to be the voice of the members in your region/sector, advocating for their interests, articulating their perspective to the College and communicating with them on the College’s work. As a Member Representative you would sit on the Paramedic Council, which will play an instrumental part in ensuring that strategy is developed and delivered with membership interests at its heart. The Council will be supported by Head Office staff to develop connections with members throughout their region or sector and build effective member groups and networks.
