Intereach’s value applauded
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.
