ANGELA NAMED WINNER
THE Australian Institute of Company Directors is pleased to announce that Caloundra’s Angela Miles is one of the recipients of the 2017 Queensland Not-for-Profit Scholarships program.
There were 20 scholarships on offer for Queensland directors to undertake one of the AICD’s highly respected Not-for-Profit courses.
In her role as Manager of STEPS Charity where she supports young adults with a disability, Angela focuses on providing skills-based training to students facing barriers due to disability.
AICD Queensland State Manager Melanie Mayne-Wilson said the scholarship program aimed to support directors in the Not-for-Profit sector.
“We were overwhelmed with more than 50 high-quality applications, but Angela stood out because of her inspiring dedication to improving governance for this newly-formed organisation,” she said.
“It was clear from Angela’s application that she has a real passion for working with the Caloundra community, as well as an unwavering commitment to supporting young adults with a disability.
“Two-thirds of the AICD’s 41,000-strong membership play some role in the not-for-profit sector, so improving and ensuring the long-term governance of this vital sector is a real focus for the Institute,” Ms Mayne-Wilson said.
Angela said she was thrilled to have won a Not-for-Profit scholarship, and looked forward to taking the world-class governance learnings and putting them into practice.
“This course is a wonderful opportunity for me to further develop my leadership skills,” Angela said.
“I feel proud to be granted the opportunity to participate in such an excellent course for directors in Australia.
“It will also assist me in developing a sustainable fundraising program for STEPS and in building a deeper understanding of the future corporate governance requirements of a charity.
“I am really looking forward to spending time with leadership peers, sharing ideas and experiences and seeking new ways to improve outcomes for local organisations.”
