I am pleased to share that HIMAA has appointed Vicki Bennett, CHIM, FACHI, CHIA, as the Australia IFHIMA National Director and she will serve as IFHIMA President Elect for the remainder of the 2019-2022 term. Kerryn-Butler Henderson, PhD, CHIA, CHIM, resigned the PE position in September 2020.
Vicki served on the IFHIMA Board in the 2010 term, has attended and presented at many IFHIMA Congresses over the past 20 years, including serving as Australia Deputy Director at the 2019 Congress in Dubai. Additionally, Vicki has been very involved in HIMAA and the Pacific Health Information Network (PHIN).
Vicki is currently the Head of the Metadata and Classifications Unit at the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, where she has held a number of different roles over the past 13 years. She was previously the Manager of the Information Strategy Section at Medicare Australia. Additionally, Vicki works closely with The WHO Collaborating Centre in Australia.
