EHA : Yearkbook 2009
EHA YEARBOOK 2009 7 Environmental Health Australia South Australian Branch President Ian Hawkins MEHA Ian is a qualified Environmental Health Officer with broad experience in Environmental Health within Local Government in South Australia and the United Kingdom. His substantive position is Manager Environmental Health and General Inspectorate at the City of Po r t Adelaide Enfield. In 2006 Ian nominated for SA Branch President, a challenging and rewarding opportunity to participate in the development of best practice Environmental Health in South Australia. He is particularly keen to see Environmental Health Australia develop tools and resources for Environmental Health Professionals to assist the fulfilment of changing roles; raise the standard of practice and recognition of our profession and plan for the future of public and environmental health in our communities. Victorian Branch President (to Aug 2008) Geoff Fraser MEHA Geoff has 22 years local government environmental health experience across rural and metropolitan Councils, including a role as Director of Planning and Environment during Council amalgamations. His current role is Business Unit Leader Environmental Health for the diverse municipality of Greater Dandenong and during 7 years has overseen the prosecution of some 200 cases under the Victorian Food and Health Acts and developed a team focused on regulatory compliance. Greater Dandenong has permitted great freedom in developing a team of professionals who are widely respected as having some of Australia’s best Environmental Health knowledge. In addition to the Diploma of Environmental Health, Geoff holds a Bachelor of Business Management and assists EHOs to consider “the business of food”. He is always seeking development opportunities for EHOs. Tasmanian Branch President Mark Dwyer MEHA Mark commenced his public health career in 19 78 as a cadet health inspector with the Hobart City Council. Thirty years later he is now the Manager Environmental Health at the same council and continues to find the job exciting, challenging and stimulating. The transformation of local government in Tasmania from a sleeping dinosaur into a vibrant and competitive business over this period has certainly fuelled his enthusiasm to remain an active public health professional at 'the coalface'. Mark’s other professional interests include presiding over EHA Branch activities in Tasmania. Mark believes that there is much to accomplish and achieve for the members and EHOs alike, and it is very gratifying to be working on Branch Council with such a keen, motivated and dedicated group of people who share the same goal. His final career-orientated academic challenge is to study and qualify for the new Bachelor of Environmental Health that will soon be offered at the University of Tasmania. Mark’s ambitions at this stage of his career are to maintain good health, a trim waistline, a sense of humour and the current level of enthusiasm for his career and EHA. Branch Presidents
