NEW FACES JOIN AWARD COMMITTEE IN 2007
The AWARD Membership have cast their votes for the AWARD Executive Committee 2007, their choices deciding the fate of a record number of nominees standing for this year’s positions. 17 people vied for only four spots on the regional Committee.
“We are very pleased with the overwhelming support and nominations for the AWARD 2007 Committee and we welcome new members Dejan Rasic, Gavin McLeod, Buzz Pringle and Mark Stott to the 2007 Executive Committee," says Co-chair Paul Prince.
“I agree wholeheartedly with Paul – never before have we had so many diverse skills represented,” added Philip Putnam, Co-chair.
Lucy Mckee, General Manager of AWARD adds; “2007’s agenda is another very rewarding one for AWARD Membership and the future generation of members. There is a strong focus on developing programmes across the region, with CopySchool conducted in NSW, VIC, QLD and NZ plus the addition of AWARD Craft to Melbourne being just some of the examples. Consolidation of some existing facets of the organisation will be also crucial.”
The full Committee met yesterday (27th March) at the AWARD offices in Sydney to allocate the portfolios and devise the strategic development for 2007 and beyond.
AWARD Members will be soon invited to nominate their choices for the 2007 judging panels.
