Council has new Chair and Deputy Chair

At its first meeting of the year, the Council elected as its new Chair Chris Mallon and as new Deputy Chair Kerry Adams. Chris is currently Director of Midwifery at the Hutt and Wairarapa DHBs and Hutt’s Women and Children’s Service Manager, and has had extensive experience as both an employed and LMC midwife. Kerry is a senior lecturer in the School of Midwifery at Otago Polytechnic and has worked in all maternity settings in both Wellington and Dunedin.
Current Chair Judith McAra-Couper and Deputy Chair Debbie Fisher stepped down from the roles as both complete their terms on the Council later in the year. They will be formally acknowledged at that time but the Council has been grateful for the leadership, knowledge and experience each has contributed to midwifery regulation over the years.
