Friday 26th June - Announcement of Elected Executives

The election process for branch committees in all states and territories is now complete. It is a mark of ACEL’s growing reach and significance that there was great interest in the branch executive positions this year. It also reinforces our belief that educators are keen to ‘give back’ to their colleagues and wider education sector and make a contribution.

On behalf of the President and Board of ACEL, we would like to congratulate the successful branch executives in each state/territory – their names are listed below. Their formal term begins on October 1, 2020 and they will thereafter serve on the branch executive committees of ACEL branches for a term of three years ending on September 30, 2023.

ACEL is the largest professional association of its kind, in Australia and the wider Asia Pacific region. We work hard to fulfil our purpose: ‘To shape the practice and contribute to the growth of educational leadership.’ Over the past few years, our branches have played a stellar role in elevating our presence and reputation. I know our newly minted branch executives are looking forward to making a unique contribution to ACEL and serving the wider education community in the coming years!

Kind Regards,

Aasha Murthy
