ACON’s Siri May had been appointed to New Mardi Gras’ board of directors.
May has years of experience working in health promotion, community development and advocacy in the gay and lesbian community.
“We are delighted to have Siri on the board,” NMG co-chair Steph Sands said.
“She has a wealth of community experience, is highly respected amongst our community organisations, and is a perfect role model for our younger demographics in the organisation. She will play a big key role in integrating NMG’s activities into initiatives in the wider community.”
May continues to work in the gay and lesbian community as the coordinator of the Lesbian and Same-Sex Attracted Women’s Project at ACON.
New Mardi Gras believes her credentials for the board are superb and she’ll make a difference.
“She is also the third female director and I’m very pleased that we are reaching a point of balance on the board,” NMG director Lynne O’Brien said. “We will work hard together to ensure NMG engages effectively with women as members, volunteers, customers and partners.”
