The Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) is inviting expressions of interest from people interested in sitting on the ACI Consumer Council (http://www.aci.health.nsw.gov.au/about-aci/our-people/consumer-council).

The ACI works with clinicians, consumers and managers to design and promote better healthcare for NSW.  The ACI Consumer Council provides expert advice to the ACI and its Board on consumer engagement strategies and represents consumer members of ACI Networks, Taskforces and Institutes.

Membership involves attending up to five 2-hour meetings per year at the ACI office in Chatswood, NSW, for a term of 2 years with the opportunity to nominate for reappointment for a further 12 months.  The positions are unpaid but the ACI will organise any travel and reimburse any costs associated with attending meetings and participating on the Council.

There are currently 3 vacancies available.  If you are interested in joining the ACI Consumer Council, please review the attached Fact Sheet and Terms of Reference and complete the Application Form by 15th September 2016.
