Mr Kerry Stokes AC has been reappointed as a member of the Council of the Australian War Memorial for a further 12 months.
Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Darren Chester said Kerry’s extensive experience, leadership and dedication would continue to benefit the Council and its ongoing stability, particularly as the Memorial progresses through the early stages of its major upgrade.
“The work of the Council is crucial in raising national awareness of the service and sacrifice of our current and former Australian Defence Force members and their families, and as a member of the Council and during his time as Chair Kerry has done an outstanding job,” Mr Chester said.
“Kerry is a passionate supporter and advocate for the Australian War Memorial and I thank him for his contribution to-date and congratulate him on his reappointment.”
The Council of the Australian War Memorial is responsible for the conduct and control of the affairs of the Memorial and the policy of the Memorial with respect to any matters determined by the Council.
“I also thank all Council members for their dedication and hard work in preserving and sharing our military history and ensuring our veterans’ stories of service are told at the Australian War memorial,” Mr Chester said.
