Earlier this week ACSA announced the appointment of Adjunct Professor John Kelly AM to the role of CEO. He will be based out of Canberra. “It’s a significant time for the sector and the community as the Government prepares to formally respond to the PC’s Report ‘Caring for Older Australians’ and the discussions surrounding the establishment of the Australian Charities and Not for Profits Commission,” Professor Kelly said. “I look forward to advocating on behalf of ACSA’s membership in these critical discussions.”

Professor Kelly has over 15 years of experience as a director of not‐for‐profit and remunerated health and aged care related organisations. He is also a recognised expert on health law, health administration and health policy.  In 2010 he temporarily held the position of Commonwealth Aged Care Commissioner, appointed by the Australian government.
