From the CEO

I am looking forward to visiting Chapters in South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland over the coming weeks. I will have a chance to speak to staff in person as well as attend some Chapter councils and events. This will be an opportunity for me to get a very real sense of how the Institute’s recent changes have impacted at a local level, as well as discussing the positive signs of progress and near-term improvements the organisation is making.
