Media Release
Councillor Toms hosts ALGWA Executive meeting &
“Leading Ladies” Forum

In the interest of promoting community awareness and education for women in the Clarence Valley local government area, Cr Karen Toms has successfully secured an executive position on the New South Wales Branch of the Australian Local Government Women’s Association (ALGWA). This is the first time a Clarence Valley Councillor has been elected to the Executive of ALGWA NSW.

ALGWA NSW branch executive will be holding their executive branch meeting in the Clarence Valley on 8th February 2014. This is a unique opportunity to showcase the Clarence Valley to councillors from across the State.

In conjunction with the executive meeting, a Free Community Forum will be held on Friday 7 February 2014 at the Treelands Drive Community Centre at Yamba. The Forum is titled: “Leading Ladies”.

The “Leading Ladies” Forum will examine leadership stumbling blocks women meet in daily activities, at home, socially or in the workplace. The focus of the Forum is to provide practical straight forward solutions for the modern world through practical leadership techniques for women. Become skilled at maintaining your personal values without disrespecting traditional values of others. It is designed for all ages and people from all walks of life, who aspire to become, or already see themselves as leaders or anyone who simply want to improve their confidence or increase their self-awareness. Parents may also find the Forum beneficial to assist daughters with transition into the workplace.

The presenter, Katie Clayton-Vincent, has formal education in Management and Leadership. She will share her experiences of climbing the corporate ladder, and reveal leadership technique adopted when overcoming the difficulties of working as a senior management in male dominated industries. In addition to running a successful agricultural business, Ms Clayton-Vincent conducts mentorship and business coaching work with women in the Clarence Valley.

The President Cr Colleen Fuller and her team look forward to their visit to the Clarence Valley.
