Get more involved in ASO - Committee roles open to applications

We are inviting ASO members, at all career stages, to apply for our Operational Committee positions.

At the ASO, we are excited by the changes ahead. Growing our dedicated teams will result in more benefits to our membership, and we look forward to working with more of you over the coming years. 

Current available roles are:

  • ASO Operations Secretary (2 posts on a role sharing basis)
  • ASO Sponsorship Role
  • ASO Communications Lead

Please view the role descriptions for each of these positions.

To be eligible for any of the operational roles, you need to be a current ASO member studying or working in a professional research and/or practise relevant to obesity. 

All committee roles are voluntary. For most roles, applicants should be prepared to commit around one day per month including attending meetings and delivering on the role outside of meetings.

If you would like to speak with someone about any of these roles, please contact the ASO Office at stating which role(s) you are interested in so we can direct your queries to the most relevant person, or the named contact in the role descriptions.

Please complete the online application form by no later than 9am on Monday 29th April, 2024.

Application form.

There may be further ASO committee roles advertised later in 2024 following the development of our strategic plan.

Applications from eligible candidates will be included in an election, with ASO members voting to select which candidates should be offered the positions. If there is only one candidate who applies for a position, the application will be reviewed by the Operations Management Team and we may appoint without election.
