Queensland Council Update

Queensland council would like to advise the resignation of Mel Sinclair and Leanne Weeks.

Both Mel and Leanne have been an incredible support and asset to both council and to AIPP’s Queensland members. We would like to thank them both for their hard work and dedication over the years.

Mel joined council in 2015 and has held the roles of Vice President, President and more recently, as Secretary. Mel has been an integral part of running council and her endless knowledge of the photographic industry and council procedures has been invaluable.

Mel has offered her continual support and guidance to council from an informal position. And we are very grateful for Mel’s unwavering support.  

Leanne joined council 18 months ago in the role of Treasurer. Leanne has been a powerhouse organiser and was a huge support to council, particularly during the state awards last year. 

On behalf of Qld council and all Queensland members, we’d like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to Mel and Leanne for volunteering so much of their time. After all, without the generosity and dedication of members like Mel and Leanne, Qld council and the AIPP just could not function. 

And although Mel and Leanne will be greatly missed on council, they’ve assured us they’ll still be regulars at all AIPP events and awards. 

In other news, we now have two spots on council available. You must love crunching numbers, having council meetings over a glass of wine, party planning and talking all things photography.
