Remainder of ARLP 26 graduates in virtual ceremony

8 November 2021

On Wednesday 3 November 2021, we conducted our first-ever ‘virtual’ Australian Rural Leadership Program (ARLP) graduation.

Six participants from Course 26 of the ARLP graduated. They were unable to attend the final session of their program and graduate with their peers in Dubbo, NSW earlier this year due to COVID and personal circumstances. They have demonstrated leadership in their perseverance and commitment to the program by undertaking additional activities in order to complete the program and graduate.

Congratulations to:

  • Erin Gorter – Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment
  • Renee Teys – Australian Meat Processors Corporation (AMPC)
  • Annabelle Bushell – Grains Reasearch and Development Corporation (GRDC)
  • Claire McLaren – Grains Reasearch and Development Corporation (GRDC)
  • Kylie Dunstan – Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC)
  • Robert Horstman – Prime Super

Family and friends of the six graduating participants, other members of the ARLP26 cohort, ARLF staff members, ARLF board member Sylvia Admans and ARLF Patron Emeritus and Sir Peter Cosgrove attended the event hosted by our Chief Executive Matt Linnegar.
