My vision for LG Professionals, NSW, and the reason for nominating to serve on the Board is to achieve the following;
1. to respectfully contribute and advocate on behalf of the emerging workforce within our sector,
2. to establish a clear connection between the leaders of today (knowledge and experience) and the leaders of tomorrow (ideas and enthusiasm), and
3. to provide meaningful input into the strategic vision for the sector, notably as a stakeholder who will see that vision through to a state of realisation.
It is anticipated that the sector will witness a surge of current leaders retiring from local government in the near future. I recognise the importance of establishing the platform for intergenerational communication and strategy development. As a sector we move together, not as isolated generational segments serving our own purpose. The opportunity to represent the workforce and leaders of the future as a voice at the table that drives sector change is the basis of my nomination. I wish to do this through purposeful learning from our current leaders, whilst respectfully voicing the vision and ideas of the emerging workforce.
