Fortnight round up

It was great to be able to welcome over 45 CEOs and Senior Management staff from our members to Canberra last week. We have not held a Strategic Leadership Forum since 2019 and the event was a great opportunity to hear from and talk to key figures in Canberra, meet and network with colleagues in the sector and engage with politicians on the Hill. You can read more about the event in our eBulletin.

Last week, we also had the FRSA AGM and announced the results of the 2022 FRSA Board Election.

The FRSA Board now comprises:

  • Glenda Devlin
  • Serge Sardo
  • Teresa Jayet
  • Leanne Strommen
  • Allison Wainwright
  • Zoe Locke
  • Fallon Roberts

Co-opted Board Members:

  • Judge Matthew Myers
  • Megan Mitchell

FRSA did farewell Paula Washington and Tony Fitzgerald from the Board and the Chair of the Board, Glenda Devlin, thanked them both for their commitment and dedication to FRSA and the network during their tenure.

The Board met after the AGM to elect Office Bearers and establish the Board Committees. The FRSA Office Bearers are:

  • Chair – Glenda Devlin, General Manager – Community Services, Anglicare Sydney
  • Deputy Chair – Teresa Jayet, CEO, Mallee Family Care
  • Treasurer – Serge Sardo, CEO, Better Place Australia

A full list of committees is provided in our eBulletin and on the FRSA website.

The FRSA Board will drive the deliverables articulated in FRSA’s Strategic Plan 2023 – 2027 that was launched at the Strategic Leadership Forum. I invite you to take the time to read through these priorities and we look forward to bringing them to life over the coming years.

It has been a huge fortnight and last but not least – we have announced the FRSA Conference 2023 will be held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre in Queensland. Our competition had phone lines running hot but the winner was quick off the mark – dialing in to the office about 10 seconds after the FRSA Conference bulletin went out! Congratulations to Denise Giles from Scope Consulting, who successfully secure a complimentary FULL registration to the FRSA Conference. It was also great to speak to all the other callers! We look forward to seeing many of you at the FRSA Conference 2023.

The Call for Abstracts is out – and you can read more in our eBulletin.
