AADA Announcing Transition Plan

AADA notes that CEO, Mr David Blackhall, has indicated his desire to reduce his full time commitments at the end of his current contract on 30 June 2019. AADA is delighted that David will continue in a consultancy and advisory capacity to the AADA for a further 6 months until 31 December 2019.

Separately, we are announcing leadership transitional arrangements in accordance with a plan approved by the AADA Board last year (see copy of Members’ Bulletin attached).

David has been an outstanding CEO for AADA.

During his almost four year tenure he has guided the Association through a period of unprecedented regulatory and legislative change. Whilst some of these regulatory changes are still being negotiated, David has agreed with the Board to continue to assist us through to fruition on these important matters during 2019.

We thank David for his leadership and look forward to continuing close ties through to the end of the year.
