Sally has also held governance roles as Chair of the Midwifery Council of New Zealand and as President of the New Zealand College of Midwives. In these roles, she chaired the governance groups and liaised closely with the Chief Executive.
Sally has successfully lobbied governments for significant funding to improve midwifery education and persuaded the publishers Elsevier to fund the writing and publication of the Australasian midwifery textbook, ‘Midwifery: preparation for practice’ now in its 4th edition.
“ICM is delighted to announce Sally’s appointment and to welcome her as the new CE of the ICM” said ICM President, Frances Day-Stirk
