New CDO appointed for NSW Riverina

by admin

Bowls Australia, Bowls NSW and NSWWBA are pleased to announce the appointment of Gael Evans-Barr as Community Development Officer for Riverina, marking the second NSW CDO signing within a week, following last Thursday’s designation of Mathew Searle to the Western and North Western region. In her prior roles, Evans-Barr has held various positions at the Cancer Council Queensland since 2007, including South West Queensland Community Services Coordinator and most recently State Coordinator for Public Health Communications and Marketing, whilst also studying an MBA in Health and Human Services Management from Deakin University, which she will complete in November this year. A detailed knowledge and strong background in engaging the community through physical activity and healthy initiatives, and travelling within remote and regional areas in Australia to prepare thorough business tools, such as business planning, financial reporting, grant acquisition; setting up IT, and establishing relationships with local government, will ensure Evans-Barr is an invaluable asset to clubs within her new region. Bowls Australia congratulate Gael on her appointment and look forward to her commencing her post with Bowls Australia, Bowls NSW and NSWWBA on Monday, September 23.
