Appointment Development Director Aus/NZ
The Executive of the Association has adopted the recommendation of a selection committee comprising Justice Cathy Branson, Judge Ema Aitken and myself that Sue Zelinka be appointed as Development Director for the Australia/New Zealand Chapter. The position is part-time and is for one year. The work of the Development Director involves two primary functions. One is to develop the core function of the Association in devising training projects, and the other is to raise funding to support a permanent position to coordinate and professionalise the work of the Association. Funds for this position have been raised from two sources. The fundraising function is supported by UNHCR and the other function is funded by moneys raised from private philanthropic sources in Australia. Many of you will already know Sue who has been a highly enthusiastic and effective member of the Association for many years. Her experience as a member of the Refugee Review Tribunal in Australia and previous human rights positions makes her ideal for the position. It is to be hoped that the Europe Chapter and the Americas Chapter will soon appoint similar regional officers. My vision is to see these three people working together to make our Association both professional and truly international.
