Surf Life Saving NSW would like to congratulate two Directors who were re-elected to the Board on Saturday, 13 November for a two-year term.

John Restuccia OAM and Kerry Clancy will take on the roles of Deputy President and Director (unspecified), respectively.

John is arguably one of the most dedicated surf lifesavers in NSW, bringing nearly four decades of lifesaving, surf sports and member services experience to the organisation. John was previously the NSW Director of Lifesaving between 2005 and 2017 and held the Deputy President position for a term.

Kerry, too, is familiar to the role she has been elected to take on, having been the first woman to be elected to both the North Coast Branch as President and then to the Board of Surf Life Saving NSW in her previous role as Deputy President (2011-2017). She has also previously been the Director of Member Services.

The SLSNSW State Council, comprising the Presidents from the 11 NSW branches, voted on behalf of their clubs and members through an online process.

The primary role of the volunteer Board is to drive the organisation forward to achieve the objectives outlined in the strategic plan by working with clubs and branches, with support from the staff of Surf Life Saving NSW.

Indeed, the first actions of the newly elected Board members will be to assist in the delivery of the new Strategic Plan, Lifesaving Reimagined. This plan will help guide the organisation for the next three years and has been developed with comprehensive membership engagement, collaboration, and direction.
