NSW Division extends their thanks to Faye Woodward who is stepping down from the committee after 14 years. Faye has served the NSW Committee as Secretary for 9 years (2000-2009), NSW Councillor for 4 years (2009-2013) and General committee member (2014).
Faye received the 2012 Mary Lou Morris Award in recognition of her exceptional service to the Institute, at a Divisional level. The growth and success of the Division since 2000 would not have been possible without Faye’s unpaid and untiring contribution – attending Divisional Committee meetings, recording discussions and preparing minutes, being an active contributor to discussions, generating interesting ideas for events, guest speakers and importantly delivering these events. Recently, Faye has been a strong supporter of regional members, organising successful events in Wagga Wagga and Bathurst, volunteering her time to facilitate and attend.
As Chair of the organising committee for the 2012 EIANZ conference in Sydney, Faye invested 18 months leading delivery of Institute’s flagship event. The conference was extremely well received, had a high participation rate and produced a significant surplus for the Institute and the NSW Division, enabling the Division to take on bigger and more ambitious, high-calibre events with greater financial security. These contributions have all been provided on a voluntary basis, and with an exceptionally positive, can do, attitude.
