New LEP faces in WA and SA

The LEP welcomes two new faces to our team and bids adieu to two of our dedicated, long-serving LEP Coordinators.

Maita Wilson is the new LEP Coordinator in Western Australia, taking over the reins from David Brown, who has just retired. David made a significant contribution to developing and extending the LEP program in WA and is well known by the WA library community. His dry sense of humour and his dedication to the LEP will certainly be missed in the future. Maita has worked with the ABS for nine years, gathering experience in various ABS subject areas, Statistical Consultancy, and in Client services and liaison. LEP clients will benefit from her wide experience in the ABS. Maita has a tertiary educational background in Psychology and French.

Carla Bianco assumes the role of LEP Coordinator for South Australia, while Pam Balfour moves on to other career opportunities - fortunately, still within the ABS! Pam has made a significant contribution to designing and developing LEP training material and made many friends in the SA library community. Carla has had a varied career in the ABS, including working on the 2001 Census Social Atlas Project and as Team Leader and Manager in the SA ABS Information Consultancy Unit. Her skills are very welcome in the LEP. Carla's tertiary background is in Science and Legal Studies.
