What does a Delegate do?
Delegates provide an important link between our members and the RDA office – this may include organising RDA meetings and talking to new employees about the benefits of RDA membership such as belonging to a strong collective group. Where appropriate delegates will also provide support to members about workplace issues.
In the video below, Dr Sarah Rance, RMO at Southland Hospital in Invercargill, talks about what it’s like to be a delegate. You can watch other videos of your delegates, members, and executive team on our Meet Your Delegates page.
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BECOMING A DELEGATE?
The delegate role is a very rewarding one – as a delegate you have the opportunity to develop negotiation and problem solving skills, to help others less able speak out and to have a real say in the future direction of your profession. The role of delegate is a learning process and we are always available at the RDA office should you have any questions. We hold training for delegates every year which is a fun way to meet other delegates, learn about your employment agreement and rights and also how to help other members.
