A message from chair of the WHGNE board
Welcome, and thank you for your support of Women’s Health Goulburn North East. This year has definitely challenged our resistance to all things unexpected.
Since last year Amanda has comfortably moved into the role of CEO in what one can only say has been an exceptionally challenging time for our community. From fires in our region in late 2019 to the unexpected outbreak of COVID-19 from December to now, it has tested everyone in so many different ways.
A massive challenge for our organisation was to transition to a work-from-home model. This has been extremely challenging given the delivery method of our programs, ruling out travelling throughout the region, delivering face-to-face workshops. I would like to thank Amanda for leading this transition and the team for working together to achieve the best outcome for everyone.
I am very excited to see our new website and read through all our offerings. I have enjoyed reading the wonderful resources and projects now easily accessible to everyone.
On behalf of the board of WHGNE I would like to thank Amada for her continued drive in supporting our organisation, the ever diligent team without whom we would not be able to do what we do. I would also like to thank the board members for their support during the past year and to those who joined for the first time this year.
In these uncertain times it is difficult to say what the next year will have in store for us, however I do believe we will be able to deal with whatever it may be, given how well everyone has adapted during the past 12 months.
