Election of ACCPA Deputy Chairperson: Geraldine Lannon

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Geraldine Lannon as the Deputy Chairperson of ACCPA, as elected by directors at the ACCPA Board meeting on 13 February 2024. Geraldine is the Chief Executive Officer of ACCPA member, Baptcare.

Geraldine brings to the role strong industry knowledge, with extensive strategic leadership experience in aged care, public health and community services, along with very strong board governance experience and qualifications.

In her time on ACCPA’s Board, Geraldine has demonstrated a strong commitment to the work of ACCPA in supporting its members and the age care industry.

Geraldine’s appointment as Deputy Chairperson follows the departure of Cherylee Treloar from the Board at ACCPA’s Annual General Meeting in November 2023.

As part of her new role, Geraldine will chair the sub-committee tasked with the recruitment of a new independent chairperson for ACCPA, who will take up their role when our inaugural chairperson, Dr Graeme Blackman AO, completes his term in November. This process will begin in the next few months and we will provide further updates as it progresses.
