Mary Karras, new ECC NSW Executive Officer for 2015

by Esther Lozano - Thursday, 12 February 2015

It is with great pleasure that we welcome our new Executive Officer, Ms Mary Karras. 

Mary is a passionate believer of the principles of multiculturalism and throughout her career has been instrumental in ensuring that multicultural policies, programs and services met the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse communities (CALD) across the 
Sydney area. 
 
Mary is a member of the NSW Department of Education and Communities, Deputy Secretary's Multicultural Education Advisory Group, and a member for the NSW Ministerial Board for NSW Community Languages Schools. Her strengths lie in policy development, strategic planning, advocacy and operational management. 

We welcome Mary to our organization and wish her well as she embarks in her new role. We are looking forward to working along with her on new initiatives and directions for ECC NSW. 

We also want to wish you all a very happy New Lunar Year! 

Many of our members will be celebrating in the next few weeks this remarkable time of the year; an occasion for family reunion, harmony, happiness and joy. Enjoy the festivities!

Peter Doukas,

Chair
