Peak body announces new CEO

Arts Access Australia (AAA), the peak national body for arts and disability in Australia is pleased to welcome its new Chief Executive Officer Meagan Shand.

Ms Shand replaces outgoing CEO Emma Bennison who, after almost four years leading the organisation, takes on the role of Executive Officer with Blind Citizens Australia, the national consumer organisation of Australians who are blind or vision-impaired.

AAA’s Deputy Chair Jacqueline Hornjik says that while the board are obviously sad to see Emma leave after witnessing her incredible determination to advocate for arts & disability, they are equally excited by the prospect of what Ms Shand will bring.

“Meagan’s experience in the disability sector, coupled with her passion for the arts makes her a perfect fit to lead the organisation.” Deputy Chair Ms Hornjik says.
