The new Chair of the Defence Reserves
Support Council’s Queensland
committee is Margaret Goody.
Ms Goody aims to use her solid
knowledge of the linkages between
business, industry and government to
help her in the role.
“My main goal will be to further
enhance industry engagement as there
has been a lot of activity in this space,”
said Ms Goody.
“However, the potential to promote
what a Reservist brings to an
organisation is unlimited”.
“A second key goal is the engagement
of the indigenous business community
as the indigenous community has a
high representation in the Defence
Force in the northern parts of
Ms Goody was ‘handed the baton’ by
outgoing Chair Tony Behm at Brisbane’s
United Service Club in June following a
special farewell dinner.
Mr Behm said he was pleased to be
handing over to Ms Goody, who had
been his Deputy Chair for three years.
“Margaret brings such a wide range
of experience to this role. She has
excellent networks developed through
her employment and community
activities and this will continue to help
the Queensland committee move
ahead,” said Mr Behm.
“I feel we have really increased the
profile of the DRSC in Queensland over
the past six years that I have been Chair
and I know that Margaret will continue
along this path.”
Mr Behm said he felt his biggest
achievement had been helping with
the implementation of the Employer
Support Payment Scheme and the
Reserve Leave Policy Guidelines.
