Dear ASCCA Members, 

I hope this message finds you well. I am pleased to provide an update on the significant progress and activities our Board members have been undertaking of late.

We are currently in the process of recruiting a CEO for ASCCA, a role that will initially be voluntary. Our goal is to secure funding through grant-based sources to financially support this position into the future. Over the past month, our board members have been diligently conducting interviews from a highly competitive field of candidates. We anticipate announcing the successful candidate in the coming weeks. 

Two women smiling and standing side by side. The woman on the left, with long dark hair, glasses, and wearing a patterned dress, is holding a Certificate of Appreciation from ASCCA. The woman on the right, with short grey hair and wearing glasses and a black top, is standing next to her. They are in an indoor setting with a plant in the background.

I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to our Intern, Anushka, whom we secured for Semester 1 through University of Western Australia and the McCusker Centre.   You can read more about Anushka’s internship in the article below.  

A special thank you goes to Scott and his team at Centre for Accessibility Australia for providing mentoring and office space for Anushka. Their support has been invaluable. 

I am also pleased to introduce our new voluntary Admin Assistant, Amanda Fechney, who has joined our team. Additionally, we are excited to welcome a new Intern through UWA who will be starting mid-June. 

After careful consideration, the board has decided not to hold a conference again this year. Instead, we are focusing our efforts on hosting the highly supported Competitions, and we will share more information about this event as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to ASCCA. Together, we are making great strides in achieving our mission. 

Warm regards, 
Jenny
