Society Chairman Ms Lorna Fanning today announced that a new Director had agreed to serve on the Board for the remainder of the term left vacant by the resignation of Robert Watchirs from NSW. The new Director is Ms Vicki Mascord from Sydney.

Ms Fanning said “Vicki comes to the Board with a lifetime of experience and involvement in the Society through Branch & Management Council and was recently awarded our National Volunteer of the Year.” Ms Fanning continued “Vicki is highly regarded in the Society and in the broader horse industry in general.”

Ms Fanning said the Board would like to thank Robert Watchirs for his time on the Board and wish him well in the future.

With four women now on the Board, Ms Fanning said that gender balance was an important issue to be considered along with skill based attributes when selecting a new Director. “The Society’s demographic is predominantly female and we need to reflect that on our Board” she said.

With the Society set to celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2021, Ms Fanning believes that more women should consider governance roles in the industry. “I am so pleased to be able to work with a Board that is progressive, cohesive and committed to what the future may hold” she concluded.
