Who we are


The Tasmania AGLN committee is comprised of senior executives from a variety of APS agencies who volunteer their time to support APS leaders by providing forums for:

  • leadership development
  • exchanging innovative thinking, ideas, knowledge and experiences
  • peer support and collegiality
  • facilitating whole-of-government approaches to APS activities
  • member contributions to the development of local and strategic APS initiatives
  • reducing the impact of geographical isolation from national offices.

The Australian Public Service Commission (APSC), working with AGLN committees, has responsibility for the successful delivery of these events and conferences.

Our committee members are:

  • Phil Spehr – Department of Defence (Chair)
  • Brad Rayner – Australian Taxation Office (Deputy Chair)
  • David Wilson – Australian Government Solicitor (Secretary)
  • Karla Foster – Department of Health (Treasurer)
  • Lisa Wardlaw-Kelly – Australian Bureau of Statistics
  • Matthew Oliver – Department of human Services
  • David Orchard – Department of Social Services
  • Gina Sidhu – Department of Employment
  • Luke Brown – Department of Veteran’s Affairs
