From the President.
Warmest greetings ACS members, colleagues and sponsors,
It is my sad duty, to inform you that National Secretary and ACS stalwart, Ben Allan ACS CSI has decided to step down as our National Secretary; for family and business reasons.
I thank Ben for his commitment to the ACS and to his vision of change for the benefit of all. I am hopeful he will continue his important work with the Constitutional Committee and other committees he plays an active role on.
We are currently in the process of looking for someone to take on the important job of National Secretary, along with an Assistant Treasurer.
The ACS participated in the recent Senate Enquiry Sessions with ACT President; Miguel Gallagher and Accredited member; Michael Fardell ACS playing important roles in the proceedings, which resulted in a positive outcome for the industry.
