We wish to advise that Ellen Owen has joined us as the NSW/ACT Regional Representative on the AusAPT Management Committee.

The vitality and future of AusAPT depends on the efforts of volunteers including those who volunteer to be part of the Management Committee of AusAPT. So we are very grateful that Ellen has volunteered to join us to lead the NSW/ACT community and events and to be part of the leadership team. A long-standing member of AusAPT, we are already appreciating Ellen’s valuable input and local leadership of AusAPT NSW/ACT.

Thank you Ellen!

You can also read the Position Descriptions of each of the positions here:

All of the roles assist in building on the positive base established in recent times including repositioning AusAPT in an increasingly virtual environment, growing our membership and partnerships, adding further value for members and streamlining our operations.

The success of our 2020 online ‘Valuing Type in a Virtual World’ Conference demonstrates how AusAPT can reshape its practices and ways of working, invite connection and foster type learning nationally and globally.

We will host another exciting virtual event in 2021, celebrating 30 years of AusAPT and 100 years of Type at our Talking Type Together event, on 12 – 14 November.

So if you are passionate about type, enjoy working with a proactive team to make things happen in new environments, love to see people connect and talk at type events and want to see a positive future for AusAPT – we’d love to hear from you.

We look forward to working together with you to shape a bright and connected future for AusAPT!

Terri Connellan
President, on behalf of the Management Committee
