Applications are being accepted for board members to help influence the strategy and direction of the Veterinary Practice Management Association (VPMA).
To be considered, applicants must be a full member of VPMA, be actively engaged in a management role, have an ability to perform at a strategic level and have a history of achievement reflecting high standards for themselves and others.
The board is relatively small and highly focused. As such, the skills, knowledge and personal characteristics of the ideal board member cover a range of competencies in the areas of leadership, strategy, communications, decision making, representation, sector awareness, team working and self management.
In particular, VPMA is looking for people with skills in:
- project management
- event management
- social media
Opportunities for progression
Serving on the board involves attending up to five weekday meetings a year, but members also have an important representational and communications role to play by meeting VPMA members at national and regional gatherings.
More experienced board members may be invited to take on additional roles as chair of a committee or a member of a working party, so there are options for progression. This is a voluntary position with paid expenses.
If you are interested in being involved at a greater level within the VPMA, write a statement summarising, in no more than 300 words, why you wish to be considered, your relevant experience and what you can offer to the VPMA.
- Send your application to VPMA Secretariat, 76 St Johns Road, Kettering, NN15 5AZ or email firstname.lastname@example.org
- The closing date is 19 February.
