The QAMH Board met recently to celebrate the contributions of two Board members that have decided to step down from the Board.
Two of our Board members have decided to leave the QAMH Board this year.
We sincerely thank Neil Barringham and Leah Soutar who are both stepping down from the QAMH Board.
Neil is well-known for his passion for the sector and for bringing his drive and determination for community mental health to the QAMH Board. Neil was first elected to QAMH State Council in 2014 and appointed as an Elected Director following QAMH’s transition to a Company in 2016. Neil has served in many important roles, including on the Governance Sub-Committee, Finance Sub-Committee and the Membership Working Group. He has a deep knowledge of the sector in Queensland and his contribution has been invaluable to the continued growth of QAMH over the years.
Leah was first elected as an External State Councillor in 2015 and subsequently appointed as a Skills-Based Director following QAMH’s transition to a Company. Leah’s depth of experience across the health sector is immense and her contribution to the Board, the Governance Sub-Committee, the Strategic Planning Committee and the Recruitment Sub-Committee over the years cannot be understated. Her vision and passion for strategic planning has helped position QAMH to be ready for future challenges and to assist members through a time of significant transition.
We wish Neil and Leah all the best for the future.
