Message from the President

Greetings ACS members, friends and colleagues,

I know it’s a little late but HAPPY NEW YEAR and all the very best for 2018.

As you may know on December 15th late last year we held an Extraordinary General Meeting at the ACS HQ to discuss in detail and set a new standard from the Society when it comes to Sexual Harassment, Discrimination & Bullying.This is a giant, positive step forward for the Society and all those delegates including Branch Presidents, Office Bearers, members of the ACS Womens Advisory Panel that attended the December EGM had nothing but positive feedback.

Apart from the revised ACS Policy, we also put in place an ACS CODE of ETHICS and PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT which can be found on our ACS web site and in the links below

We have also taken the step of providing 2 National Peer support contacts, Ron Johanson ACS and Erika Addis. Our task is to confidentially listen and offer additional support & resources, if requested by any person who feels they are the victim of Sexual Harassment, Discrimination or Bullying in an ACS environment. We are both available at any time.
The meeting recommended the formation of a nationally constituted Ethics & Discrimination Sub-committee.... to hear claims of any gender, race, disability, religious, sexual orientation discrimination or harassment and bullying of any kind. This includes any verbal, emotional, physical, cyber or sexual harassment.

Those nominated to be part of this committee were; Ron Johanson ACS, Peter Curtis ACS, Erika Addis, John Stokes ACS and Bonnie Elliott ACS.

It was also proposed and carried that the Branches each form a sub committee of two – three persons, or whatever is practical as ‘go to’ persons for anyone in need of any kind of assistance at Branch functions or events.

The ACS has a long and proud history and we are always mindful of the welfare of our members. Your National Executive and your ACS Board will continue to monitor and ensure the Society always provides a safe and harmonious working and social environment for all.

Until next time
Ron Johanson OAM ACS
National President
