The CHIA Board has appointed John Nicolades as Vice-Chair, to share some of Chair Michael Lennon’s representational and advocacy workload.

John is already a CHIA Board member, fulfilling the role of the Region Director for New South Wales.

In addition to being the CEO of Bridge Housing, John has held senior positions in the NSW Government and the community services sector.

Michael Lennon says the need to create a vice-chair position is evidence of the organisation’s sustained growth over the past 12 months.

Michael says John was the obvious choice for the role, given the commitment he has demonstrated to the development of a strong national peak body.
