Farewell and thank you to our Chairperson, Jackie Softly

Date: 15 December 2010

The Minister and Council members farewelled Council Chair, Jackie Softly, after six years service on Council. We thank Jackie for her outstanding commitment and contribution as Chair, Deputy Chair and member.

As well as her work for the Advisory Council, Ms Softly has been an active advocate for her son and other people with a disability for many years, in particular, through her representation on a range of state and national committees. Her widespread knowledge and expertise will be missed on Council although we are sure she will continue her work in other ways within the community.

Jackie’s work was also recognised at an afternoon tea with His Excellency Dr Ken Michael AC, Governor of Western Australia. See photos below:

We wish Jackie well with her future endeavours.
