Emma Couch and Julie Spencer join the Technorama Board
The Special General Meeting which updated the Technorama Incorporated constitution increased the size of the Technorama Board from seven to nine, and created two casual vacancies.
At the Board meeting held on 19 June, the Board unanimously voted to appoint Emma Couch and Julie Spencer to fill the positions as Ordinary Committee members. Emma and Julie will hold these posts through to the 2018 AGM, when they become eligible for election.
John Maizels, President of Technorama Incorporated, has welcomed the appointments as a significant positive step in the development of Technorama.
“The Technorama Board has worked hard to ensure that we can provide skills-based leadership. Both Emma and Julie bring a wealth of professional and personal experience that plays directly to Technorama’s core missions.”
“Emma Couch has been heavily involved with Community Radio as a broadcaster, organiser and trainer and has a solid technical bent. Julie Spencer started in Community radio before moving into a professional career which puts her in the upper ranks of broadcast engineers in Australia as a hands-on project manager and facility developer.”
“We are very fortunate to have such passionate and committed people in our ranks, especially at a time when Technorama has been focusing on improving diversity, gender equity and skills within the technologist community.”
