We would like to share some news pertaining to the leadership of the Network with our allies, members and colleagues.
Anzio Jacobs and Celia Engelbrecht, who have involved in the running of the Network on the Executive Committee since 2010 will soon be departing from the continent to broaden their career and learning opportunities in Thailand and San Diego. We have been extremely lucky to have their expertise in the positions of PR Officer and Logistics (Celia) and National Vice and National Convenor (Anzio). I would like to take this opportunity to thank both for some incredible work. Amongst their successes was assistance in running of a short course in LGBT studies, art for advocacy, regional lekgotlas, national lekgotlas and representation to HCWG, JWG and other fora.
The positions will be filled from the Auxiliary and existing Executive Committees as follows:
National Convenor – Tish White
National Vice Convenor – Thuli Mathabela
Logistics Manager – Matthew Moto
Secretary – Brendan Roche-Kelly
PR Officer – Kokeletso Legoete
Deputy PR Officer –Jan Malatjie
The above committee will operate with immediate effect until the April 2013 AGM (lekgotla), where a new committee will be elected.
We wish Anzio and Celia nothing but the very best in their futures and know that they will always be allies and friends to the Network. We thank them for the incredible work they have put into their roles, and anticipate their hard work in every future opportunity.
Incoming National Convenor
