Meet the 2016 IIAR board

IIAR Logo SmallTo ensure continuity in the new year, the IIAR board opted to open two positions for 2016, to replace Debleena Paul and John Gallaher who both wished to step down.

The board would like to thank them for their support in 2015 and is looking forward to John and Debleena’s continued engagement.

Two candidates have stepped forward for those positions and therefore were confirmed immediately. From January, the new board for the next 12 months is presented below. IIAR members can see their full submissions here on Huddle.

The board also committed to reform the institute’s governance in 2016, to allow better members participation, minimise disruption and reinforce accountability.
