The WIA Board of Directors has appointed a new Executive Administrator for its office in the Melbourne suburb of Bayswater. The successful candidate is Bruce Deefholts, who comes to the WIA from the corporate sector, but with some not-for-profit experience. His new full-time contract position answers to the WIA Board through the President.

Bruce will also become the WIA company secretary organising and attending WIA Board meetings. The WIA has also appointed Petra as the new Examination Officer. Petra has served in that role for some time as an agency temporary and has now accepted a full time position with the WIA. We are very pleased to have Petra on board. A professional analysis of the WIAs existing processes and future requirements was carried out in 2015, and the Board decided to replace the position of Office Manager with the new position of Executive Administrator.

Meantime, the WIA office underwent a top-to-bottom review to reflect the wishes of members, and to better face an environment of regulatory change for spectrum users and the prospect of some further government outsourcing. The end result includes emphasis on customer service, delivery of member services, office function streamlining, banking and finances. Obviously Bruce will take some time to settle into his new role, so if you have a query of the WIA could you please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions section on the WIA website first, before contacting the WIA Office.
