Christopher Cliffe Resigns from President Role

3 May 2013

Christo­pher has been at the helm of the organ­i­sa­tion over the last sev­en years dur­ing which time CRANAplus expe­ri­enced sig­nif­i­cant growth.

He helped lead CRANAplus through con­sti­tu­tion­al changes to reflect the chang­ing nature of remote health, a com­plex fis­cal envi­ron­ment and a vari­ety of polit­i­cal challenges.

I have been tru­ly hon­oured to have been entrust­ed with this role by the mem­bers of CRANAplus for so long,” he said. I am thrilled by all we have been able to achieve, and the ded­i­ca­tion and pro­fes­sion­al­ism of the CRANAplus Board Mem­bers, Staff and Mem­bers both past and present have been tru­ly inspirational.”

He added: I have lots of oth­er pro­fes­sion­al com­mit­ments and inter­ests that I am keen to expend my ener­gy on, so I’m pleased that I will remain heav­i­ly involved with­in the remote health indus­try and the nurs­ing profession.”

Christo­pher will con­tin­ue as the CRANAplus rep­re­sen­ta­tive and Deputy Chair­per­son for CoN­NO (Coali­tion of Nation­al Nurs­ing Organisations).

Car­ole Tay­lor, CEO of CRANAplus said: It has been great work­ing with Christo­pher, and I thank him for all of the time he has vol­un­teered over the years to CRANAplus. His com­mit­ment to remote health has always been unwa­ver­ing and I’m sure I speak on behalf of our Indus­try in wish­ing him all the best in his future endeavours.”

I also look for­ward to work­ing with Mr Paul Stephen­son, who will be the Pres­i­dent until our next AGM in Sep­tem­ber where the posi­tion will be elect­ed by the membership.”

We have a strong team to con­tin­ue to pro­vide lead­er­ship and we are grate­ful that Mr Cliffe will remain on the gov­ern­ing board as a gen­er­al mem­ber until the AGM in Sep­tem­ber to help pro­vide sta­bil­i­ty dur­ing this tran­si­tion period.”
