Board members should have skills, knowledge and experience to assist with some area of the governance of the activities of ICANZ and support the principle of the paramountcy of the child. Being a Board member is a voluntary role. Skills that are particularly helpful for Board members of an adoption organisation include social work, psychology, teaching or child welfare involvement, medical expertise, media work, event management, promotional or fundraising, graphic design or website skills, legal skills,  business management, previous board involvement.

Board members may be adoptive parents, or members of the public with an interest in the welfare of children in orphanages, who support ICANZ’s philosophy. It is not possible to be a Board member while currently carrying out an adoption. If you are willing to donate your time and professional skills to work with the ICANZ Board, please contact ICANZ. We’d love to have you involved.
