Appointment of new Director
In July 2013, the Board of the Maleny Credit Union appointed Dr CL Claridge as a director. This followed on from the director recruitment process which we undertook in April and May this year, with a view to strengthening the local representation on the board and to gain a director with experience of social and community-based enterprises.
CL is a community development and social planning specialist with over 30 years’ experience. She has a PhD in empowerment and her passion for community participation and development has led to exciting and varied work in both developed and developing countries around the world.
CL has a long history with Maleny, first living here in the 1980’s, and describes it as her favourite place in the world. She is enthusiastic about the Maleny community and about the Maleny Credit Union and its potential to be an industry leader in sustainable banking.
