FIA CEO and Board Chair step down
At the Fundraising Institute Australia's (FIA) December Board meeting, Chief Executive Officer Rob Edwards informed Directors of his intention to step down from his role in June 2018.
Nigel Harris also announced that he will be concluding his two-year term as Board Chair. FIA's new Chair, James Garland, and his Board will then oversee the transition of executive leadership by mid-2018.
In a statement, Mr Harris revealed that several other long-term Directors will be retiring alongside him after the Institute's Annual General Meeting in March.
Earlier this year, the FIA Board approved a strategic plan through to 2020 which outlines a significant body of work, some of which is already in market. This includes the launch of a new self-regulatory Code, which is of particular significance in 2018, engagement in public and regulatory affairs, together with other initiatives including membership structures and professional identity which will form a major part of FIA's agenda in 2018.
The FIA Board identifies that it is critical to FIA's work that it manages a planned and progressive approach to leadership changes throughout 2018.
