Your elected representatives
The ‘Council’ is what we call the governing body at SHFPACT, commonly called a board or committee in other organisations. Council members are elected by the membership to two-year terms at the Annual General Meeting, and then the specific office bearers are appointed at the first meeting of the Council following the AGM. Following last year’s annual general meeting, the following Council members and office bearers were elected:
- Joanna Spratt (President)
- Matt Sammels (Vice-President)
- Sunny Lee (Treasurer)
- Janelle Weissman (Secretary)
- Alice Knight
- Jane Hadrill
- Camilla Burkot
- Bronwyn Clark
- Matthew Noonan
SHFPACT is proud to work with Canberra schools and our collaborating partners to support school communities to be safe and inclusive places for same-sex attracted, intersex, and gender diverse students.
Sexual Health and Family Planning ACT (SHFPACT) has a long record of service provision and advocacy to meet the identified needs of same-sex attracted, sex- and gender-diverse Canberrans, and is proud of a longstanding commitment to gender equity in health, education and community services through our training programs for professionals in these industries.
For SHFPACT, the Safe Schools Coalition program represents a continuation and extension of this commitment to helping families as primary educators and schools as formal educators for Canberra's young people.
