In presenting the awards, the Commissioner acknowledged the commitment and passion which all of the award recipients across the AEC brought to their work in 2009, and thanked them for their contribution towards enhancing the AEC’s reputation for excellence.
The team in Victoria who deliver the BRIDGE program were also awarded an Australia Day Achievement Award. BRIDGE is a modular professional development program with a particular focus on electoral processes.
BRIDGE represents a unique initiative where five leading organisations in the democracy and governance field have jointly committed to developing, implementing and maintaining the most comprehensive curriculum and workshop package available, designed to be used as a tool within a broader capacity development framework.
Congratulations to Alan Green, Ross Attrill, Yvonne Goudie, Maureen Green and Ben Murray.
