Promoting the College and general practice
By providing representatives for committees and working groups, the RACGP ensures appropriately experienced GPs provide a professional voice to promote the College and general practice.
Requesting College representation
The following information is required from requesting organisations:
- details of the role of the committee, including its aims and objectives
- tenure, including proposed meeting process, dates and venues

The College requires payment of remuneration for its representatives. This includes provision of sitting fees and travel and accommodation, where required.

Becoming a College representative
As part of our advocacy for members, the RACGP encourages the participation in a variety of external national committees and working groups.
The College is always looking to grow our national representatives registry and we are interested in identifying members with special expertise and interests, as well as those generalists with a broad range of skills in primary health care.
As a College representative, members have an opportunity to provide expert GP advice and represent the views of the College. As well, representatives get to meet a wide range of health professionals with similar interests.
Other benefits include:
- learning skills to represent the College
- peer networking opportunities
- the opportunity to influence important health initiatives for all Australians.
If you are interested in becoming a national college representative please contact the Representatives and endorsements Coordinator.
