Thank you Jenny

As 2019 slides into history, it will take with it the story of Jenny Gilchrist’s 20 year involvement with the IEU(SA) Executive. Jenny is leaving the Executive at the end of this current term.

Joining the Executive in 2000, Jenny has been President for the last 9 years and Vice President for 9 years before that.

She comes from that increasingly rare beast – a union family. In Jenny’s farewell comments she recounted  her journey from post war migration to a long teaching career at PAC. At one point in time we had both Jenny and her brother Keith Smith on Executive. Jenny kept us on track when chairing meetings and was not swayed if she thought an idea was not practical.

Recently we presented Jenny with a glass plaque (below) to recognise her service to the union.

Jenny, we wish you all the best for the future and thank you most sincerely for your decades of service.
