    Getting Involved

    MEDSAC's success is as a result of the active involvement of our members in the governance and leadership of the work that we undertake.

    We currently have 5 active Board Committees:

    • Education & Training Committee
    • Information & Communication Committee
    • Membership & Accreditation Committee
    • Governance Committee

      The activities undertaken in these committees serves the needs of our members, and delivers important clinical advice, training and support to the wider community of professionals who address the needs of people affected by sexual assault / abuse.

      We welcome expressions of interest from members who would like to contribute their time and energy to any of the Committees. Please contact the relevant Committee Manager for further information.
