Introduction – Chairperson’s Report
The 2017 – 2018 financial year marks the second full year of operations under the stewardship of Dr Elizabeth Mann (Liz) following the retirement of the founders, Mal and Dianne McKissock in January 2015. Pleasing progress continues to be made in the attraction and retention of outstanding counsellors, and the company continues to provide an excellent level of service to the community with our existing and new programs that have been piloted this year.
In the 2017-2018 period, our newly appointed members, Heidi Coupland, Emmanuelle Delannoy and Deborah Clay deepened and diversified the Board with their positive contributions, for which we are all thankful. This was our first year without our longest serving board member, Rick Taylor, who retired on 30 June 2017. On behalf of the NCCG Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rick for all his efforts over the years in steering this organisation. His contribution has layed an enormous role in establishing the strong foundations of the Centre, ensuring capacity for future strategy. This has certainly been an incredibly helpful legacy for our current Board, particularly as the Centre moves forward under a new leadership. We are all thankful for his commitment to the NCCG and while he will no longer be on the Board, we know he will always remain a dear friend and continue to
support our efforts in other ways.
I am excited for the year ahead and thankful to have a solid team of colleagues to work alongside with.
