“It has been an absolute pleasure to have worked with the Board members and staff during my time on the Board, and I must thank both them and the members for that opportunity given to me. It will indeed be a sad day for me to leave the AvSuper family, but in doing so I have every confidence that its future is assured, and that it is operating to the highest standards and efficiency of any Fund in the country,” Mr. Fishlock said.

After 30 years as an air traffic controller, qualified accountant George has been an enormous benefit for AvSuper.  He was the Chairman of the Investment Committee for some years, and has been Chair of the Trustee Board since 2013. 

Michelle Wade, AvSuper’s CEO, said, “George has been a consistent champion of members’ interests during his tenure, as well as a great support and mentor to myself and the management team.  He will be greatly missed by all here at AvSuper and we wish him well for the future!”

AvSuper supports the fight against breast cancer

One in eight people get diagnosed with breast cancer every day.  That one in eight is my Mum. It could be yours.

On 13 May 2018, it will be the 21st running of the Women in Super Australian Mother’s Day Classic and I’m proud to say that AvSuper are sponsoring this worthy event for the 11th year.

The aim of the Mother’s Day Classic is to deliver a fun, healthy and inspirational event that brings the community together on Mother’s Day to support and remember those touched by breast cancer.

We would love to see you support this event in your capital city by walking, running, registering to volunteer or making a donation.  This is the largest single fundraising event which supports further research into breast cancer through the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) – over $33 million has been raised in the last 20 years.

In Canberra, the event is being organised by a great team which includes two AvSuper staff (Naomi Hales and myself), and will be supported on the day by many volunteers such as our Operations Manager, Shan Badowski. If you’re in Canberra, come and say hello, and maybe you can walk alongside Nick Smith, Executive Manager – Finance & Tax.

Together, let’s walk all over breast cancer!

Registrations are now open at http://www.mothersdayclassic.com.au/register/ – don’t forget to add yourself to the AvSuper team!

Donations can also be made online at https://mothersdayclassic18.everydayhero.com/au/avsuper.
