Transport Women Australia’s (TWA) Jacquelene Brotherton has left the board after five years due to increasing work commitments.

Brotherton, who works as a transport manager at Oxford Cold Storage in Melbourne, leaves her director role but remains a member of the group.

TWA Chair Pam McMillan has expressed disappointment over Brotherton’s resignation but says her hard work has helped shape the group.

"I’m sad and disappointed because we need good workers on the board and it’s difficult because we’re only a small board, so when someone resigns it’s difficult because it makes the workload of others more," McMillan says.

"She’s put five years of hard work into the board which is a big commitment and we have certainly appreciated the input and the hard work."

McMillan says TWA is considering expressions of interest for the vacant board position.

Brotherton believes the organisation is primed for a successful year.

"I think TWA has great prospects for the coming year with the survey to get some proper data for women in the industry, the skills panel which began at the conference (last year) and some other plans they have," she says.
