NEW ACCPA VICTORIAN DIRECTOR
The ACCPA Board of Directors is delighted to announce the appointment of Geraldine Lannon as a Director of ACCPA, filling a casual vacancy in the position of Victorian Director.
As a Board appointed position, the ACCPA Board undertook a transparent and robust process for the appointment, commencing with an open call for nominations from our members in early February 2023. The position attracted a large number of high calibre candidates and we thank all of the nominees for their interest and efforts.
Geraldine is the Chief Executive Officer of Baptcare, a leading, faith-based, not for profit organisation providing services in residential care, retirement living, home care, disability, seniors’ housing and a number of other areas across Victoria.
Geraldine brings to the ACCPA Board over 26 years’ executive leadership experience in aged care, public health and community services. She has served on a number of boards including a large, not-for-profit aged care provider in Western Australia and the Health Round Table, which provides data analytics to hospitals across Australia and New Zealand. Amongst her broad range of relevant skills, Geraldine’s extensive government relations, digital, change management and strategy development experience particularly recommended her as a worthy addition to the ACCPA Board.
Geraldine holds clinical, management and governance qualifications, having initially qualified as a registered nurse and including a Master of Business Administration and qualifications in safety and quality, project management and emergency management. She is also a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Geraldine has received a Western Australian Health Award for Effectiveness Through Clinical Engagement and has also been a finalist in the Telstra Women’s Business Awards.
The term of appointment for this Director position concludes at ACCPA’s Annual General Meeting in 2025.
We look forward to welcoming Geraldine to the ACCPA Board at our upcoming Strategy Workshop in early April 2023.
