EHA : EHA Yearbook 2010
EHA ANNUAL REPORT 2010 9 Environmental Health Australia South Australia President (to Nov 2009) South Australia President (from Nov 2009) 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 Port 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. Tony Pearson MEHA Tony is a qualified Environmental Health Officer and has worked in a number of different states for local government in the past twenty years. His current position is Team leader of the Health and Ranger Services for the City of Onkaparinga. In 2009 Tony took on the role of South Australian Branch President after being Vice President for a number of years. At this stage Tony is keen to ensure EHA (SA) INC remains viable through the period of the restructure of the national body. He also is determined to ensure that the board continues to provide relevant training opportunities to its members and remains financially viable in the future. Branch/ State Association Presidents Tasmania President Mark Dwyer MEHA Mark commenced his public health career in 1978 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 is 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.
