SARRAH will be holding its next National Conference virtually in 2022, and we are calling for expressions of interest from our members who may be interested in volunteering to be a part of the Conference Organising and Scientific committees.

The SARRAH National Conference is recognised as one of the key events that provide opportunities for allied health professionals working in rural and remote areas to network and share ideas, concerns, and solutions to advance allied health concepts for improving the quality of life of rural and remote residents.
The Conference will attract engagement from a broad range of researchers and practitioners around a chosen theme.
It is anticipated the first meeting of the combined Organising and Scientific Committee will be convened in early December 2021, after which the respective committee chairs will convene separate meetings for the organising and scientific committee streams.  Both committees will have the full support of the SARRAH CEO and secretariat.
The role and responsibilities of Conference Organising and Scientific Committee Members include but are not limited to:
  • set the strategic direction for the Conference, including conference objectives, abstract selection, keynote speakers, program development;
  • assist in the drafting of relevant Conference documentation, including sponsorship strategy, a thematic overview, concept note, website content, call for abstracts, running sheets, promotional activities;
  • recruit invited speakers, finalise the scientific program schedule, review and select oral abstract presentations, review and select poster award nominations
  • undertake outreach and communication, including approaching potential sponsors; and,
  • any other tasks assigned by the SARRAH Board and the CEO.
Committee members and their organisations will be duly recognised and acknowledged on the conference website, and members will receive free conference registration.
How to apply:
If you are interested in joining a committee, please submit an EOI by completing the form available here by Friday 12 November 2021.
