Rural Health Alliance Aotearoa New Zealand
RHAANZ is a membership organisation that depends on a number of key people contributing to the operation, including preparing the Council and Executive meeting papers.
Marie admits herself to not being particularly organised, and suffers from the same ailment as many others…being time poor! The preparation of meeting papers used to be a task that she dreaded, but since she began using BoardPro, the whole task has become simpler and quicker to do – and with a fantastically professional look to it!
BoardPro allows others to contribute to meeting papers while ensuring consistency across meetings and team members. Meeting agendas, minutes and follow up actions are all easily recorded with great calendar reminders when the deadline is about to fall! "BoardPro does all that for us without any need for juggling contributing documents, particularly when there are last minute changes to the agenda, and chasing up people to complete the actions they agreed to in a meeting! It’s an easy to use tool, that makes me look good!”
Marie was appointed Executive Director of RHAANZ in 2018 and oversees the secretariat services for RHAANZ through her role at the NZ Rural General Practice Network. Marie’s varied career spans rural chartered accounting, sheep and beef farming, lecturing in business studies, planning & funding in DHB and senior management roles across health and social services.
The Rural Health Alliance Aotearoa New Zealand represents a united voice from across multiple rural sector organisations. They aim to provide solutions and influence policy affecting the health and wellbeing of rural communities.
