The 2016 Ballot for the Election of Directors at the National Trust Annual General Meeting resulted in non-metropolitan candidate, Mrs Elaine Lawson’s election as a Director.
Mrs Lawson is a Heritage and Curatorial Consultant whose links to the National Trust go back to the 1980s, when she was a member of the ACT Women’s Committee.
Her goal is to foster a closer relationship between the Trust and Government with the aim of protecting our cultural heritage both nationally and locally.
Mrs Lawson’s previous professional roles include: Senior Curator of Historic Places in the Cultural Facilities Corporation – ACT; Trustee of the Historic Houses and Official Establishments Trusts; and, a member of the National Management Committee of the Australian Garden History Society.
We would like to congratulate Mrs Lawson on her election and warmly welcome her to the National Trust Board of Directors.
