Directorship Opportunities

Board Directors play a key role in the success of organisations. LASA Directors, individually and collectively, contribute to both LASA’s performance and our industry’s leadership. They influence the future direction of our organisation and contribute to enabling a high performing, respected and sustainable age services industry, delivering affordable, accessible, quality care and services for older Australians. 

At no other time in the sector’s history has the need for robust, respected and assertive leadership been more pronounced than under the current COVID-19 pandemic circumstances and on the eve of the Aged Care Royal Commission releasing its findings and recommendations.
