After receiving two nominations for the position of ordinary member on the Branch Committee of Management, the contested election saw over 33% of the membership cast a vote and we can now declare the new BCOM member is Sandra McCallum.

Sandra is a radiographer and delegate from MIA and was welcomed to her first BCOM meeting in December. We look forward to her contributions as part of the VAHPA team in 2016.

We’d also like to thank Jessica Windridge from the Royal Children’s Hospital for her nomination. It was great to see a contested election and the huge participation rate shows that members are engaged.

A Union is only as strong as its membership. The members of BCOM are your directly elected representatives. We have an excellent team on BCOM who are dedicated to ensuring the Branch is heading in the right direction and acts in your best interests.
