CEO Geoff Scott departs NSWALC 

5 December 2013 

After a successful career heading NSWALC, Geoff Scott has decided not to renew his employment contract as the CEO.

Following Geoff's decision to no longer continue in the role of CEO, the NSWALC Council acknowledged Geoff's vital contribution and commitment to NSWALC spanning from 2003-2013, both in a number of Executive positions and more importantly as CEO of the organisation.

On behalf of the Councillors, NSWALC Staff, the Network and other major Stakeholders, Chairperson Cromelin also thanked Geoff for his outstanding contribution heading the organisation and for providing a lifetime of work in, and around, the New South Wales Land Rights Network.

"Geoff Scott headed NSWALC through a hallmark period and was successful in driving the necessary reforms, setting new directions and establishing a clear focus on the organisation's core business outcomes."

"I wish Geoff every success in whatever future career he desires to follow and should he choose to pursue his continued passion and contribution to the Land Rights movement in other arenas, it will be greatly received and appreciated."

"There are a number of current challenges facing NSWALC and the Network, together we will face these challenges with clear strategic direction for our future in line with NSWALC's 2013-2017 Strategic Plan."

With this in mind Council has also arranged for Mr Lesley Turner to continue to act in the role of CEO at NSWALC awaiting the recruitment action to fill the vacancy, which is planned to be undertaken in the New Year.
