Two new Board members were elected, they are; Kevin Bryant (Agriculture ITO) and Steve Hurring (Motor ITO).

“Marilyn’s election very much confirms the current direction of the ITF. Marilyn has been an active and enthusiastic advocate of industry training for many years and an engaged member of the Board. She has also been very involved in our relations with key stakeholders and agencies,” said Paul Williams, ITF Executive Director.
