01.CHOICE Council Elections 2010
CHOICE has a new Council member following elections, the results of which were announced at our AGM on Friday, 26 November.
David Marcus was elected onto Council following a postal ballot. A full election was triggered after four candidates stood for three Council places. Council members are elected to three year terms with one third of the seats open for contest each year.
David has been involved in consumer policy and advocacy since 1979 and worked for the then Shadow Minister for Consumer Affairs as advisor on national consumer policy. He joined CHOICE's staff in 1987 as deputy manager of the policy and advocacy department, leading campaigns in areas such as telecommunications, food safety and aged care. More recently, David has worked as a consultant, particularly in the field of health, and has conducted studies into how to improve consumer access to health services. Currently, David is active in indigenous health policy, evaluating the impacts of Northern Territory Emergency Intervention and of strategies to control petrol sniffing. He is also a member of the ACT Pedal Power Advocacy Team.
Two Council members were re-elected: Bill Davidson and Frank Muller.
