ACNC Advisory Board Chair: Commissioner Pascoe's term will end on 30 September

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) Advisory Board Chair, Mr Tony Stuart, has confirmed the inaugural Commissioner, Susan Pascoe AM, will finish her five-year contractual term on 30 September 2017.

Mr Stuart, who is also the CEO of UNICEF Australia, welcomed the government’s commencement of an open, transparent, and consultative recruitment process. 

“As the ACNC prepares for the five year legislative review in December this year, I encourage the government to appoint a new Commissioner who will continue the important work of the ACNC,” Mr Stuart said.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Susan for her enormous contribution to the ACNC and Australia’s not-for-profit sector. The organisation will feel her loss and impact.

“Susan’s leadership, integrity and drive have seen the ACNC flourish in the face of sustained uncertainty.

“Under Susan’s leadership, the ACNC has not only survived – but thrived. 

“Susan’s leadership was rightly recognised when she was awarded the top 2016 Leadership in Government Award for Outstanding Contribution in Public Administration in November 2016, highlighting her leadership and professionalism.

“The ACNC Advisory Board and I wish Susan the very best for the future.”

It is anticipated that the new ACNC Commissioner will be appointed by 1 October 2017.
