- Welcome to our newest EHPA Board members
We would like to welcome Leah Farrell from Nillumbik Shire Council and Shelly Kaur from Hindmarsh Shire Council as Directors on the board of EHPA. We are very excited to have them on Board and we wish them all the best.
We would also like to thank long time Board Members David Esmore (Baw Baw Shire Council) and Carolyn Anderson (City of Yarra) who have recently stepped down from the Board for their contribution. It has been greatly appreciated.
It’s great to have a mix of environmental health practitioners from Victoria and interstate, from the private sector and local government, based in metropolitan and rural areas to provide a balanced viewpoint about the profession and to lead our organisation into the future.
