The International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics (ISPO) Australia are seeking interest from potential committee members with leadership skills, a vision for our future and an interest in governance.

You will contribute to driving the long-term goals of ISPO while ensuring the organisation is running legally and in a financially responsible manner. You will be supported in the role, joining a team of 6 executive committee members and 15-20 active subcommittee volunteers.

Time commitment: expectation of 2-4 hours work per week, varying by time of year and projects. Formal meetings are held quarterly, in the evening, through a web/tele-conference service and much of the Executive work is accomplished through regular discussions online.

Board members serve on a volunteer basis, without remuneration.


Ms Meleita Finnigan, Honorary Secretary:



The M&M team was established in 2015 and in that time has worked to rebuild a new web platform (coming soon) and improve member communications. We are seeking additional team members with interest in web management, communication, course/conference support (together with science & education) and other creative talents to complement our existing team.
