Location & time commitment
Meetings are normally held at ECMS’ Offices, which are currently located in High Street, Northcote. There are approximately 10 Board Meetings per year in addition to an Annual General Meeting.
All Board roles are honorary – but any expenses incurred in performing duties on behalf of ECMS will be reimbursed. Fees for relevant professional body memberships are paid by ECMS, as is the cost of training courses and conferences that you may be required to attend.
About the Organisation
