On reflection the 2019/20 year has had many highlights and it is really exciting to see the numerous achievements of our network presented in this report. In particular, I would like to congratulate the Board on their active contribution to the pivoting of our network as we adapted to the COVID-19 climate. We have emerged from the current landscape in a strong position thanks to the organisation’s commitment to our continuous development, strategy and improvement to our underlying processes which will support the sustainability of the WiBRD’s future.

I would like to acknowledge and sincerely thank Liz Rymill for her invaluable contribution and volunteer time she has committed to our network during her tenure as a Board member.

We bid farewell to long standing board members Judy McKay and Tahlia Gabrielle who between them, served nine years on the board. Both women were pivotal in the growth and success of the WiBRD events over recent years and leave behind a legacy that will continue to be demonstrated in the accomplishments of the network.  We also welcomed two new board members to the WiBRD team, Caitlin Kennedy and Donna Foster.
