Life for long-term education leader

The tertiary education leadership organisation AUSTAFE National has honoured Director Central Australia Lyle Mellors with life membership in recognition of his outstanding long-term service.

National President Belinda McPherson congratulated Mr Mellors for having provided AUSTAFE with a consistent voice over many years.

“Lyle’s willingness to step in and provide quiet mentorship to me and to previous presidents and executive members has been invaluable,” Ms McPherson said.

“He has provided AUSTAFE with the history and corporate knowledge that has proved crucial to the longevity of the organisation.”

Mr Mellors spent many years on the executive before being appointed national president between 2012 and 2015, and has remained as past president since. 

He was the driving force behind the two AUSTAFE national conferences held in the Northern Territory in recent years.

Mr Mellors received his award at the national conference in Brisbane this month.
