Kath McLean made a significant and noteworthy contribution to TasCOSS by virtue of her tenure and achievements.
Kath had a long and very respected career in the Tasmanian community services industry, working in women’s services, crisis services, housing services, and finally in the policy position at TasCOSS. She also taught for many years at TAFE in Community Services courses and served in volunteer roles on Boards of Governance for many years, including on the Board of Women’s Health Tasmania.
Kath worked at TasCOSS for over a decade. Her keen analytical mind, diligence and hard work raised the policy work of the organisation to a high standard. She was highly respected by external stakeholders and established TasCOSS as an organisation that needed to be consulted by Treasury and Tasmanian Government Business Enterprises.
Kath worked in leadership roles at TasCOSS, including as Acting CEO, and was an example of what we all wanted to be — valued for our hard work and integrity.
Kath was awarded Life Membership of TasCOSS in November 2019.
