CEO's Message

We are looking forward to seeing as many of our Members and stakeholders as possible at our upcoming national conference in Adelaide. In addition to the conference, IAHA is holding its inaugural Indigenous Allied Health Awards at the conference gala dinner. It is wonderful to be able to recognise inspirational IAHA members for their achievements.
IAHA is also holding a Members Forum alongside our first Annual General Meeting (AGM) as a Company Limited by Guarantee. Nominations are now open for members who wish to be a vital part of the governance and leadership of IAHA. By becoming a Board Director (Graduate or Student) you will drive the work of IAHA towards an exciting future.
