Annual General Meeting Announcement


Hello OI Society Members
Just to let you know that the Annual General Meeting of the OI Society of Australia is scheduled for 26th of November 2017.
The society will be looking to fill a number of roles for the coming year.

OI Society of Australia
2018 Board Roles – Your Society Needs You!
To ensure our wonderful Society continues to grow and prosper, we are looking for members from within the OI Society of Australia (the Society) community who are interested in filling various roles on the Board of Directors (the Board) next year.
Our Board meets on a monthly basis, via Skype, and on a non-conference year we usually try to get together over a weekend in person in one of the major capital cities, at the cost to the Society.
We’ve been blessed with outstanding volunteers over many years, and we all need to ensure that continues. The Board is made up of a great bunch of supportive and enthusiastic people and we’d love to welcome you on board.
All of the Board positions are listed below, a full Board consists of 12 members. We declare each position open at the AGM for election. You will note there are a few new positions. The new roles have been created to spread the load and ensure that none of the roles are excessively demanding. However, they are all critical for the Society to function well and for all our members to be supported and for new members to connect with us.

If you’re interested or would like to discuss it further, please email me at – we’d love to have you on board.

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder that causes a person's bones to break easily, often from little or no apparent trauma. OI is also called "brittle bone disease." OI varies in severity from person to person, ranging from a mild type to a severe type that causes death before or shortly after birth.
