THE BOARD of UnitingCare Queensland has appointed two new members – former Queensland Synod Moderator, Rev Dr David Pitman and Scenic Rim Regional Council CEO, Mr Craig Barke.

UnitingCare Queensland CEO Anne Cross said, “These new Board members will bring a wealth of knowledge, skills and
personal qualities that will enable them to provide valuable input to the work we do in UnitingCare Queensland”.

Dr Pitman has previously served on the Board as an ex officio member during his time as Moderator.

“He brings great wisdom and a deep knowledge of the life of the Church and its outreach to those we support every day of the year, through our network of health and community services,” said Ms Cross.

“Craig has a proven track record of excellent organisational skills and creative leadership gained through a range of executive roles in local government and industry, as well as having a keen interest in the work of community organisations.”

Mr Barke is an active member of Logan Uniting Church and is presently a member of the Church Council.

He and his wife feel called to serve the young and disempowered in the community.

Ms Cross thanked retiring Board members Pam Spall, Dr Ian Airey and Rick Strangman for all their valued work over their many years of service.

Dr Airey and Mr Strangman both served on the Board for nine years and Ms Spall served on the Board for six years.

“The contribution of Pam, Ian and Rick has been much valued and appreciated,” said Ms Cross.
