Volunteering Australia’s CEO Changes


Volunteering Australia’s President, Tim Jackson, recently announced that Brett Williamson OAM has advised his intention to resign as CEO of VA, effective 1 December 2016.

Mr Jackson said, “It is with great regret that VA has accepted Brett’s resignation. In his 3 years as CEO, Brett has done an outstanding job in building VA’s reputation, outputs and fostering a strong collaborative culture within the volunteering network as well as strengthening relationships with the sector and government.”

Mr Williamson said, “It’s been an absolute privilege to be part of a team so totally committed to growing volunteering and civic participation in Australia.

This has been a very difficult personal decision, but I am looking forward to returning home to be with my family in Queensland on a permanent basis.

Right now however, there are many strategic and operational priorities which require my and VA’s attention over the next couple of months before I finish up,” said Mr Williamson.

Mr Jackson said, “The VA Board is very appreciative of Brett’s advance notice of his resignation and will shortly finalise arrangements regarding finding a replacement for Brett.”
