NSW Chapter Chair Message
Where has the time gone here we are well into April and a quarter of the year gone.
As you would realize by now the ACNP board is calling for nominations for the state chapter chairs.
I have been in the position for the past 2 years and I eventually feel I have my head around the operations and functions of the board and the role of the state chapters.
I am once again happy to nominate and stand for the next 2 years as NSW state chapter chair, however I would be equally happy to stand aside and let another member come forward and fill the position.
If I am successful in retaining the position I would be seeking NSW members to nominate for positions on the NSW chapter committee to support me in my role. I would hope that someone could consider putting their nomination forward as a deputy chair and be supported and groomed to take on the chair role after my term. So food for thought!!
My key intention and motivation is to be the voice of the NSW membership.
We are so fortunate to have such dedicated board executives, who so generously volunteer many hours of their time to be the voice of the members and take our challenge up to the highest echelons of government. I hope you will all join with me to thank each of them: Helen, Leonie, Wendy, Amal and Chris, and of course each of the state chapter chairs who continue to support their local state members and the national board. I would also like to acknowledge the fantastic secretariat support that Kristy Bunting provides to each of us.
I encourage each of you to regularly visit the ACNP website and participate in college activities.
Warm Regards to All,
