Professor Ross has a long-standing commitment to ANZAMEMS, as conference convenor in Wellington in 2017, and as current New Zealand Vice-President and Editor of Parergon with Professor Rosalind Smith.

Professor Ross and Professor Smith were elected by the members of ANZAMEMS at the 2021 AGM to the roles on the Committee of Vice-President (NZ) and Editor respectively, with the full knowledge that they would co-edit the journal Parergon together. This arrangement for the dual editorship of Parergon fulfils conditions set out in the ANZAMEMS constitution.
