Meet the Team

The UBC State Committee consists of volunteer Directors, who are all passionate about children’s health, and bring a diverse range of professional and personal skills to UBC as well as a wealth of volunteering experience.

The State Committee is responsible for upholding our mission to support children’s health by providing strategic direction and strong governance.

They are supported by a small staff, who also bring a wide range of skills from both commercial and non-profit backgrounds.
