David joined the Board in 2001. As Sunbury Primary School Principal, he shared his extensive community connections and professional skills to ensure sound reasoning and good decision making for the future of the organisation. He contributed his strategic and risk management experience to ensure that relevant services were being provided to the community. After gaining his master’s degree, he returned to academia and was able to contribute even more to our understanding of the community and how vital it was that we connect with them. David has questioned and guided discussions by exploring best practice and finding better ways of doing things. The Board and the organisation now work smarter because of his passion for technology. Whilst championing new technology, he places equal emphasis on reviewing outcomes and doesn’t believe in doing anything for the sake of it. David was awarded Life Governorship for his demonstrated practical governance, dedicated lifelong learning and wise decision making.
