Committee Member: Mary Blackman
In March we began introducing you to the About Inclusion Management Committee. This month we meet Committee Member: Mary Blackman
Mary is our most longstanding member, having first joined the committee in 1996.
She chose to join the committee because she saw that support was needed for this hard working group. Mary sees what needs to be done, and says "you just have to go and do it." Mary is one of those people that just keeps on doing.
Her thorough approach and full knowledge of the disability sector sees her working hard to keep things going in the best interest of those living with disability. Mary speaks out about things when required, and is a strong advocate for our loal area.
Mary was born in Sydney, then moved to Mendooran for farming, and after 20 years of marriage moved to Taree. Mary's previous work is in Early Intervention, assisting in local schools, fundraising, and providing valuable words of wisdom on many local boards and committees.
