Pamela Storey has announced that she will be ending her term on the Dairy Women’s Network (DWN) Trust board this month.

She said she is doing so to provide a new opportunity for a new trustee to shape the future of the organisation.

“I think it’s important as we go through our governance career, to make space and create opportunities for others,” Storey said.

“After five years on the Dairy Women’s Network board, I feel confident that we’ve made great strides, particularly in professional development for members, and significant industry influence,” she said.

DWN chair Karen Forlong said that Storey had made significant contributions to the organisation.

“She is a great ‘connector’ and light heartedly I think there are many within the tribe that have enjoyed her sense of fun and excitement,” Forlong said.

Storey began her career with DWN as a member in 2010 before her appointment to the board in July 2015.

Her highlights included events like Regional Leadership Forums.

“These are where friendships and support networks are forged, where our eyes are opened to new approaches, new technology and new ways of doing things that ensure our dairy businesses, and us as individuals, can thrive now and into the future,” she said.

“I’m excited about watching the next steps for a successful DWN and knowing that I, amongst others, have had a part to play in that.”
