About the Role
Are you seeking a Board position that speaks to a social (and health) justice issue? Would you like to use your communications and marketing skills to help raise awareness of a fascinating perceptual disorder that affects many Australians with vision loss? The Charles Bonnet Syndrome Foundation (CBSF) has a Board position which seeks such skills from a passionate and motivated person.
Charles Bonnet Syndrome (CBS) is characterised by sane individuals with acquired vision loss who begin to ‘see’ recurrent phantom images in their field of view. The affected person typically understands that what they ‘see’ is not real despite the vividness of the imagery. CBS is incredibly common amongst the vision-impaired and yet is barely known of, even in medical and health care settings.
CBSF is a small, not-for-profit organisation committed to this extraordinary syndrome. Established in early 2013, CBSF is dedicated to:
• Assisting those affected by the condition (including family)
• Raising the public profile of CBS
• Raising awareness in the health sector of its clinical profile
CBSF’s attempts to gain meaningful traction within the medical and health care network has thus far proved challenging. Therefore, the Foundation is seeking an experienced marketing and communications Board member who can (i) provide a fresh approach to effective engagement with relevant stakeholders, (ii) devise and implement a marketing and communications plan, (iii) shape the Foundation’s key messages and communicate these via traditional and social media.
If you wish to be one of the pioneers to help lift the CBS profile from relative obscurity to mainstream awareness (and you possess the requisite skills), the Foundation would warmly welcome expressions of interest.
