Changing of the BIAT Committee of Management

January 17, 2019

Learn more about some recent 'changing of the guard' within the BIAT Committee of Management.

At last year’s AGM three long-standing BIAT Committee of Management members retired and two new members were appointed.  BIAT would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to Sue Hodgson, Mark Lamont and Amanda Lovell for their many years of service to the organisation, and to wish them well in their future endeavours.

Sue leaves us as the longest serving member of the Committee of Management, and the first person to hold the role of BIAT Executive Officer.  Mark was ‘roped’ into the Committee of Management, and to deliver brain injury training across Tasmania, following his move back to Tasmania in 2010.  Mark’s knowledge and wise counsel will be missed. As the former Chief of Staff and Chief Political Reporter of ABC Hobart, Amanda brought a wealth of knowledge across a broad range of areas to the Committee of Management.  Amanda could always be relied on to provide a strategic perspective to Committee discussions and, more importantly, for editing of BIAT’s media alerts and media releases.

The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania welcomes Clare Ramsden and Rebeccah O’Halloran to the Committee of Management. Clare is a clinical neuropsychologist and manager of Psychology Services at the Tasmanian Health Service, and a Clinical Lecturer in the School of Medicine (Psychology), at the University of Tasmania. Rebeccah is a CPA and commenced work with Federal Group as a Finance Business Partner in November last year.  With Helen Mulcahy’s appointment to Vice President at the 2018 AGM, BIAT is very appreciative of Rebeccah’s willingness, as a new BIAT Committee of Management member, to take on the role of Treasurer.
