Elizabeth has made invaluable contributions to the AKA including serving on the AKA Management Committee (2015-2016), generating podcasts from the AKA National Conference, negotiating and obtaining competitive prices for professional indemnity and public liability insurance, and tax agent services available to members which is testament to her passion and commitment to the association. Elizabeth has excellent organisational and time management skills and a proven track record implementing her initiatives. In 2015, Elizabeth initiated and implemented National Kinesiology Week. The aims of the event are centred around raising the modality’s awareness nationally and to provide opportunities for members to build working relationships and connections with fellow practitioners. In 2015, she introduced live face to face forums in the form of Stakeholder Meetings, held during the annual conference, with the aim of bringing together industry leaders, Live Q & A from the administration team, providing members to seek clarification on anything related to membership (i.e. grandfathering clauses, new practitioner standards, practitioner registration upgrades, CPE).
Elizabeth led the way to encourage members to embrace online renewals. In 2016, the Administration Team generated a video, which consisted of a step by step process for online renewals. In 2015, the AKA had less than 20% of members carry out online renewals, today, 100%. In 2016, Elizabeth began her mission to adopt a green initiative, by 2019 the AKA Office officially embraced a paperless system.
