The purpose of the Education Advisory Group (EAG) is to provide expert advice on wound-related education and facilitate projects in relation to the education for members of the NZWCS and their stakeholders.

Accountability

The EAG is accountable to the NZWCS National Committee and for maintaining professional links with other working groups within the NZWCS.

Membership

The Education Advisory group is made up of current financial members of the NZWCS, with expertise and a special interest in education. A minimum of four and a maximum of six NZWCS members is required. Membership is decided from a formal process by way of EAG communicating in writing to the NZWCS Committee for expressions of interest. The EAG will review submissions and collectively decide membership by majority vote. The EAG can co-opt others with specialist knowledge, external to the NZWCS membership, as required for projects.

When available the NZWCS Administrator will provide a secretary role. Otherwise members will share the secretary role.

Members will provide continuous membership for no longer than 3 years after which time the member will need to stand down from the group for at least a 6 month sabbatical before being nominated or submitting an EOI to re-join the group, however, if the integrity of the group cannot be maintained in their absence, they must remain on the group until such time as a coherent group is formed. (This will be monitored by the NZWCS Adminitrator).
