The Charity Law Association of Australia and New Zealand (CLAANZ) congratulates Sue Woodward AM on her appointment as the incoming Commissioner of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
CLAANZ's purposes are focussed on education, development and reform in charity law. Accordingly, CLAANZ is excited to note Sue Woodward's long history in the charities and not-for-profits sector, involving significant leadership in education, research and reform and a deep understanding of charity law. Sue Woodward played a key role in the initial creation of the ACNC and has championed education, research, reform and guidance through her leadership of the Not-for-profit Law service at Justice Connect and more broadly, such as through the Fix Fundraising Initiative.
We welcome the new Commissioner and look forward to working with her to support and sustain a strong not for profit sector in Australia that has the trust and confidence of the Australian community.
