I'm delighted to have been chosen as your new President and pleased to have the opportunity to get more involved in the USI of the ACT.
USI has made great strides in recent years and it will be important that we continue to build on that terrific work. We might do things a little differently, but we will continue to emphasise the benchmarks of presenting a compelling program, delivering value for stakeholders, and modelling best-practice governance. One thing is for certain: if we sit still, we'll die.
I'm very much looking forward to meeting members and working with you to take USI forward.
