BSCAA names new national secretariat

Association appoints national secretariat following the resignation of national executive director.

The Building Service Contractors Association of Australia (BSCAA) has appointed Verity Copeland as its new national secretariat.

Copeland’s appointment follows the resignation of national executive director Cassie Ruhe-Hodge last month.

Ruhe-Hodge was appointed national executive director in July last year, having previously held the position of executive director of BSCAA Queensland.

Newly elected national president Kim Puxty said Ruhe-Hodge had done a wonderful job for the association.

“Verity Copeland comes to us with a number of years’ experience working with associations. She is very excited to be working with us and looks forward to meeting [members],” said Puxty.

Copeland told INCLEAN she is looking forward to meeting members and business partners at the BSCAA national networking event.

Puxty, who is administration manager for Ellems Cleaning Services, was appointed national president last month, taking over from long-serving national president, George Stamas.

Current president of the association’s NSW division Debbie Delimitros was elected national vice president for 2019-2021.

State representatives include Matthew Collings (Tasmania), Joe Kaplan (Victoria), Peter Rundle (South Australia), Lyn Whelan (Western Australia) and Mark Nipper (Queensland).

Puxty and Delimitros are the first women to be appointed to the role of president and vice-president respectively.
