“This is such an important year for the super industry and for ASFA. The ASFA team under the guidance of CEO Pauline Vamos have an enormous workload delivering on the ASFA strategic plan.
“The game has changed and the ASFA Board has many challenges before it and I am confident that with the leadership both within ASFA and at the Board level we are able to meet those challenges,” said Mr Lally.
