Election of Community Representatives
At the close of nominations for community representatives (close of business on Friday 9th December 2011), four nomnations had been received for the four available positions. In accordance with Rule 15(5) of APHEDA's constitution, the persons nominated shall be deemed to be elected at the AGM and a ballot will not be required.
The four nominees are:
"I am the Secretary of SA Unions and a member of the SA APHEDA activist group. I am a teacher by trade but also have been an organiser, vice present and President of the SA branch of the AEU and the AEU federal deputy president. I sit on the ACTU executive and have been in my current position since 2003 which has allowed me the great joy of working across all unions and industries in my state. I have been a member and regular donor of APHEDA since Bill Mansfield gave an inspiring pitch at an ACTU training conference. It taught me that there is a huge capacity for membership and commitment for APHEDA lying dormant in the union movement that we need to tap in to. I seek this position because I want to help build APHEDA to be a stronger member and activist organisation and also enable members in South Australia have a better voice and connection with the work of APHEDA."
Janet has also visited APHEDA projects in Vietnam.
"I have been a member of Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA, a donor and a volunteeer since 1997. I have been a member of the NSW Nurses Association since 1986. I have been a member of Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA Board of Management for the last six years. I would like to emphasise the value and knowledge that I have experienced and gained through my association with my fellow board members. Their deep commitment to the value of APHEDA'S core values, with the Executive Officer, Peter Jennings and APHEDA staff is to be commended. In these tough times APHEDA will stay strong, always aware of the value of its work in helping others in their struggle for self-determination and solidarity."
Liz has also seen first-hand APHEDA's work in Vietnam, Laos, Timor-Leste and the Thai Burma border. Liz also volunteered for four months with APHEDA in Laos.
"During the devastation of East Timor in 1999 I was compelled to become active as a volunteer for Union Aid Abroad - APHEDA's campaign calling for UN Peace Keepers. Since that time, in order to build delegate training programs, promote Union Aid Abroad's work & increase membership & donations I have:
Natasha also participated in the 2004 study tour to Timor-Leste.
