After 34 years of dedicated service with the Arabian Horse Society of Australia, Helen Dohan has hung up her reins and is retiring from her position with the Society.
In that time Helen has seen and been part of many exciting and challenging times with the Society and she has been a main stay and fountain of knowledge. Not easily replaced, we as a Society, are sure that we are in very safe hands with Teresa Edwards and Juliet Burnett, capably supported by Lindy Stewart, stepping up and taking on Helen’s responsibilities. We will update you on the role transitions and evolutions soon.
Helens official last day was the 1st of July 2022, however very generously Helen has offered to assist Teresa as our official representative at the WAHO conference in Jordan later this year. We are very grateful to Helen for supporting us during this process.
The good news is that Helen has offered her services on a casual basis during the transitional period and beyond if needed. Considering her valuable experience, that’s an offer we intend to accept; again, with thanks
There are many of us who have found memories of Helen, and we are very much aware the transition to a new office model won’t be without its issues. Although we as a board did not want Helen to retire, it was, as they say, inevitable. This and past boards have been conscious of a succession plan for Helen’s retirement, and we believe we are ready to move onwards and upwards as a new age in the AHSA office begins.
The Board is going to deeply miss Helen and we wish her the very best with new and exciting endeavours she pursues.
On behalf of the Board, thank you Helen.
Chairman of the Board
The Arabian Horse Society of Australia Ltd.
