HIMAA offers a range of career-enhancing opportunities by providing forums for health information professionals to discuss and solve challenges facing the industry. The main types of HIMAA groups include:


Committees progress the work of the HIMAA Strategic Plan and are a core function of the Association. Participation is by invitation or expression of interest and only open to HIMAA members.


Communities of Practice (CoPs) focus on a particular area of the industry and encourage information sharing and thought-provoking discussion. HIMAA members are allowed to freely join and participate in CoPs.


Branches are based at the local state level and provide professional development events, networking opportunities and peer support. Events are open to both members and non-members to allow people from outside the industry to engage with our profession – HIMAA members receive a discount.

Key positions in these groups require individuals willing to contribute to their industry who can contribute a portion of their time to progress the work of the group.

Vacancies are addressed through an expression of interest (EOI) process where HIMAA members can put their nominations forward to participate. EOIs will be posted below for upcoming vacancies – be sure to keep an eye out for positions for opportunities to get involved and make a difference.

Applications should address any criteria set out in the position description provided and can be sent with a current resume to executiveoffice@himaa.org.au
