Meet The ConnectGV Board of Directors
2014 - present
Jenny was elected to the ConnectGV Board seven years ago when her son Sam began attending Day Options. Jenny's role on the board was initially as a Director, she then filled the position of Vice Chair and is currently in her second term as Chair of Directors.
The Cook family chose ConnectGV for Sam because of ConnectGV staff’s strong commitment to ensure that the clients are supported in the very best way that they can be.
The reputation of the organisation is one that is built on the solid respect and strong values that it holds in the community along with the broad width of opportunities that it provides to ensure the client’s needs remain central in achieving this.
Jenny's contribution to the board, and the organisation, is twofold; as a parent, Jenny gives a voice to the clients and their families/care givers and in her role as an Executive Manager at a local non-for-profit organisation that also values and invests in the Goulburn Valley.
Jenny believes ConnectGV's new state of the art building, opening in 2021, further evidences the commitment of ConnectGV, to ensure that the clients and staff have the very finest facility. In this ever-changing landscape of disability providers this new build will further cement ConnectGV's commitment to the local community, recognizing and prioritising the needs of all people with a disability.
Jenny's contribution is twofold, that of a parent of a person with a disability and executive management experience.
