AIIA special interest group gets set for new year
The NSW Healthcare special interest group (SIG) of the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) has chosen a new chair and set out its priorities for 2015.
The SIG, which among other events staged the widely reported eHealth NSW forum earlier this year, will be chaired by Berne Gibbons, managing director of Slainte Healthcare.
Former co-chairs Bruce Pedersen of The Checkley Group and Richard Hutchinson of Emerging Systems will continue to help run the SIG as events co-deputy and marketing deputy chair respectively.
Ms Gibbons will be responsible for leading the SIG and sitting on the AIIA NSW council, as well as reviewing the goals and strategies for the group.
Mr Pedersen will share the deputy chair – events responsibility with Cameron Cumming of Lexmark and will help to coordinate and organise four events for the SIG per year.
Mr Hutchinson's role as deputy chair – marketing is to facilitate better communication for members of the SIG and increase membership awareness.
Damien Margetts of Fuji Xerox will take on the role as deputy chair – membership and will be responsible for boosting member involvement and introducing new members.
Two member representatives have also been chosen in Rob Samuel of ConsultPoint and Fiona Stuart of HP.
