Topic: Presidents Changeover
On this day President Quin Scalzo will deliver his valedictory address and formally induct the Club's 101st President.
Mary Barry is an outstanding leader with many achievements. She was appointed to her first CEO role at MECWA, a not for profit aged and community care organization based in Malvern East and providing both residential and home care. Four years later she took up the role of GM at the Shire of Melton followed an appointment as the inaugural CEO of a peak body the Victorian Association of Health and Extended Care (VAHEC) which was formed following the amalgamation of the Victorian Bush Nursing Association and Aged Care Victoria. Never one to refuse a challenge, Mary then took up the role as CEO of the Victoria State Emergency Service (VICSES) being the inaugural CEO following the Government’s decision to re-establish the SES as a Statutory Authority. Up until that time the SES was a business unit of the Department of Justice. Mary was and is today the only woman to have headed up the SES in Victoria.
