The Government and Stakeholder Relations Committee was established in May 2020 to bring together government relations representatives from DSPANZ members to coordinate approaches to government on behalf of the industry. The purpose of this Committee is to explore opportunities for DSPANZ to expand and deepen our relationships with key government departments and individuals.
The objectives of this group include:
- Identifying, establishing and maintaining government relationships to increase awareness about DSPANZ
- Representing DSPANZ members at government forums, round tables and meetings
- Assisting in the digital enablement of government services
- Identifying opportunities to influence government policy for the digital economy
This is a closed Committee and the members are refreshed annually.
Chair - Simon Foster (DSPANZ President)
Members - Andrew Stirling (DSPANZ Director, Tanda), Simeon Duncan (Intuit), Angus Capel (Xero), Collette Betts (MYOB) and Belinda Stewart (DSPANZ Director, Paypac), Chris Denney (DSPANZ Director, SuperChoice).
How the Committee Operates
The Government and Stakeholder Relations Committee meets monthly and more frequently if required. Important outcomes from these meetings are communicated with members through emails, newsletters and posts to the Forum.
