About the Government and Stakeholder Relations Sub-Committee
The Government and Stakeholder Relations sub-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 sub-committee is to explore opportunities for DSPANZ to expand and deepend our relationships with key government departments and individuals.
The objectives of this group include:
- Identifying, maintaining and establishing 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 sub-committee and the members are refreshed annually.
Chair - Chris Denney (SuperChoice)
Members - Simon Foster (DSPANZ President), Michael Ross (DSPANZ Director, MessageXchange), Andrew Stirling (DSPANZ Director, Tanda), Simeon Duncan (Intuit), Angus Capel (Xero), Collette Betts (MYOB) and Belinda Stewart (Paypac).
How the Sub-Committee Operates
The Government and Stakeholder Relations sub-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.
