Chair’s report August 2021

We focused on a number of key strategic issues at the August RACGP Board meeting.
 
We further explored the profession-led, community-based training project, with funding and program design being key issues. We also discussed timing and key principles for this project.
 
The Board reviewed a number of strategic standing items, including the internal controls framework.
We held discussions regarding key member-transformation projects, including internal member engagement tools and continuing professional development products.
 
Some key policies were reviewed, including the RACGP’s position in relation to health protocols in immigration detention and contemporary definitions of general practice.
 
The Board approved a proposal to conduct an RACGP brand refresh and introduce a ‘specialist GP’ brandmark and post-nominals.
 
We also discussed progress against the national search for a new Chief Executive Officer.
 
A discussion was also held regarding GP21, Convocation and the engageGP program. The Board recommended a number of key initiatives to enhance member engagement towards the end of this year, with a focus on face-to-face engagement where it is locally achievable with a hybrid model of technology solutions.
 
The Board also reviewed the four new co-opted, skills-based committee members who were appointed to the Finance, Audit and Risk Management, People, Culture and Learning, and Nominations and Remuneration committees.
