Announcement of new Participation/Development Officer

Sunday, 9 November 2014 | EO.AACT



I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Mary Schumacher as the new joint AACT/LAACT Participation/Development Officer. Mary replaces Alex van der Meer Simo who recently took-up a full time position in the conservation industry.

Mary comes to Athletics with over 15 years’ experience in the sport and recreation industry having worked for not-for-profit and private sectors in the development of programs with the objective of increasing participation, in particular for people with a disability. Mary has spent the past 10 years working with Gymnastics ACT leading the association as CEO since 2011.  

Tony Reilly, LAACT Chairman, and I are delighted with this appointment and we believe Mary will bring a fresh perspective to both of our organisations based on her deep knowledge of another sport. We are also excited that she can assist us in achieving better outcomes for Para-athletes in the ACT and surrounding areas of regional NSW. 

Mary will commence work on Monday 17 November.
