Board of Directors

Patience Hailey, President

Started  May 2019

Why is she on the Board? At first it was to grow numbers in the Board. Then I found I was able to contribute to the Board, Community House and the community through my involvement.

Pat Young, Vice President

Started 2010/11

Why is she on the Board? When I first joined the Board I was a committee member helping Ray Bartells coordinate our bus from 2005 to his passing in 2009. I then was asked to come on the Board. This was a good opportunity to see how Community Houses operated the purpose of the Houses in low income areas around Tasmania and how they changed to stay in touch with the community.

To be on the Board means we get together to support our community in the way of moving forward in the right direction for the House and the community to keep us accountable for the day to day running of the Community House.

Guy Jetson, Secretary

Started 2003 (that’s a best guess)

Why is he on the Board? Invited by a friend who thought it might be a good fit for me.  Have enjoyed the opportunity to help out in a small way an organisation that is an integral part of the Dorset community.

Ross Watson, Public Officer

Started July 2020

Why is he on the Board? Having retired and moved to Scottsdale I wanted to continue my involvement in the not for profit sector. Dorset Community House was advertising for volunteers, so I applied. I was surprised, but delighted, to accept an invitation to join the Committee. My hope is that my past experiences can be of assistance in helping Dorset Community House to meet its meet its objectives as it moves forward.
