Does being a part of an innovative, motivated and diverse group that strive towards developing this emerging health profession excite you.

Are you ready to make a real difference in people’s lives?

Sharing with the community the benefits of myotherapy, providing exciting career options for future students and supporting the growth of myotherapy into the allied health sector?

Great – then we need you!

As one of the smaller of the Industry Associations, the Myotherapy Association Australia (MA) boast a strong membership base and capacity to support, develop and advocate for the myotherapy profession. We have a continuing program of improved governance and self-regulation at the member and board levels, and the development of member support services have been key factors in establishing our leadership role and the value we add to the health and myotherapy sector.

Our 2019+ Strategic Plan articulates an expansion of the Association's capabilities in the areas of member and stakeholder engagement and building awareness and participation in high value industry development programs and brand development.

We are expanding our member outreach beyond Victoria and the central business district to improve access, support and training in regional and interstate areas for myotherapists, and those interested in advancing to the myotherapy qualification. Motivating and engaging therapists across a broad range of health disciplines, from nursing to remedial therapies and allied health, to undertake the myotherapy studies is also a high priority.

We are continuing to build relationships with key stakeholders including government and industry regulators, policy makers, training providers, other health care professions, students and graduates. We have been instrumental in advocating to change and equity for myotherapy providers throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, successfully influencing governments throughout Australia to permit myotherapy services as a classified essential service at the beginning of the pandemic.


The MA Board is seeking to recruit a minimum of two (2), with the potential for a third Director to join our Board. Our new recruits will be dedicated contributors with some previous Board experience desirable, however not a requirement. 

Due to personal reasons, our current Chair will be vacating this position, therefore an opportunity will be available to fulfil this role.

We are seeking Boards members within at least two (2) of the following areas to join our Board:

  • Finance and accounting,
  • Strategic planning,
  • Marketing and communications

We are now calling for Expressions of Interest for potential Board Members for a minimum 2-year term and up to an 8-year term.  If you are committed to health and how it supports our community and to providing Australian students an exciting pathway into a growing health profession, we are keen to hear from you and learn how you may help the organisation grow to be the voice our industry needs.

Register your interest to become a part of the Myotherapy Association Board of Directors
