Trans­port Women Australia gets new chair

Australian Transport News - - News | Executive Appointments - JACQUELENE BROTHERTON

has re­turned to the role of chair of Trans­port Women Australia Lim­ited ( TWAL) board, a po­si­tion she held be­tween 2009 and 2011.

The an­nounce­ment came after TWAL’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on Novem­ber 27, when the or­gan­i­sa­tion bid farewell to long-time board mem­ber and for­mer chair Pam McMil­lan.

McMil­lan, a for­mer colum­nist for our sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion Owner// Driver,

was thanked and con­grat­u­lated for her out­stand­ing ser­vice to the or­gan­i­sa­tion and the en­tire trans­port in­dus­try dur­ing her 18-year term on the board.

“This is my sec­ond time as chair and I never ex­pected to be back in the role,” Brotherton says.

“How­ever, with Pam re­tir­ing and Di and Co­ralie hav­ing been with us for only one year, it was a de­ci­sion that was made with the sup­port of the board in keep­ing the as­so­ci­a­tion strong.

“And as we move for­ward with our new Board, I feel that – as a team – we have never been stronger.

“It is by far the largest num­ber of board mem­bers we have had in my time with TWAL and we are a great team ded­i­cated to con­tin­u­ing the hard work of our pre­de­ces­sors.”
