Dr Melissa Curley's  five year term as Director for the Rotary Peace Centre comes to an end in December, 2019 with Associate Professor Morgan Brigg taking up the role in January 2020 - following is a short message from Melissa:

"I would like to sincerely thank the various people I have worked with over the years in this role, who have helped me enormously from both Rotary and UQ, including the Fellows and Class Reps, and POLSOS administration staff. I have worked with three Host Area Cordinators since 2014: Nick Curry, Shaughn Forbes and now Doug St Clair, and also on the Board with Anne Brand, Leslie Smith, Luisa Ryan and more recently David Field. Thank you for all your support over the years! I’m also grateful for the ongoing support of Evanston staff, particularly Jill Gunter who I have worked with from the start.

Thank you to Diana McCuskey for her high levels of professionalism and enthusiasm. Much of what we achieve to the standards we do them, are due to her ideas, support and attention to detail. I’m grateful to Associate Professor Nicole George & Associate Professor Richard Devetak who helped me oversee two rounds of site visits in 2015 & 2018.

Associate Professor Morgan Brigg and I have been working on various items in preparation as he takes over the Directorship in 2020, and I’m grateful for his willingness to be involved so early and for his always helpful inputs and support over the years to the Rotary Centre (too numerous to mention). We envisage a smooth transition. "

Thank you Melissa - you have been an outstanding Director and we look forward to working with Morgan in the coming years.
