In­tereach’s value ap­plauded

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

In­tereach’s value to re­gional com­mu­ni­ties was ap­plauded at the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing held in De­niliquin last week.

So too was the com­mu­nity and hu­man ser­vices or­gan­i­sa­tion’s staff which has grown in size by more than nine per cent in the past year, mainly due to In­tereach’s ap­point­ment as a key part­ner for the Na­tional Dis­abil­ity In­sur­ance Scheme (NDIS).

In­tereach chair­per­son Pat Fog­a­rty — who was re-elected to the board un­op­posed — said the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s suc­cess is a trib­ute to the ded­i­cated staff and the vi­tal pro­grams they de­liver.

‘‘Our suc­cess brings ben­e­fits to all our com­mu­ni­ties and to­gether we will con­tinue our ef­forts and com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing lo­cal peo­ple to lead the lives they choose and be con­nected to where they live.’’

CEO Keryn Fox praised the staff, board and the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s more than 200 vol­un­teers.

‘‘I would like to thank the In­tereach Board and staff for their on­go­ing sup­port, en­thu­si­asm and pro­fes­sion­al­ism through­out the year and recog­nise the sig­nif­i­cant and in­valu­able con­tri­bu­tion of our vol­un­teers. I’m thank­ful ev­ery day to be work­ing with such a fan­tas­tic team of peo­ple.

‘‘In­tereach’s vi­sion and val­ues re­flect a dream of what our com­mu­ni­ties can be when we all work to­gether.’’

Also at the AGM, board mem­bers Rob Brown and An­drew John­stone were re­elected un­op­posed, and au­di­tor Brian McCleary from Brian McCleary and Co Ac­coun­tants said the or­gan­i­sa­tion is in a strong fi­nan­cial po­si­tion.

Other board mem­bers are Re­becca Bates, Clive Gow and Di Ri­naldi.
