Helen has worked as a senior advisor with Rural Health Workforce Australia, a peak body that supports rural, regional and remote communities. She ran a national future workforce Network that comprises 9,000 members across Australia.
‘These skills will be important to the revitalisation of TCA, which is undergoing internal restructuring to produce a durable financial footing and a more representative voice for timber communities across the country.
Helen will be consulting early with the various Branches and members of TCA in order to assist the interim Board and members implement the new changes.
These changes include better representation of existing Branches on the Board as well as the inclusion of a new category of ‘affiliated’ organisations that share the same goals.
‘The aim over the next 12 months is to rebuild TCA as a grass roots timber community based organisation, drawing on a proud history of community engagement particularly at the Branch and regional levels ".
