Professor Sandra Harding was appointed as Chairperson of the Australian Statistics Advisory Council (ASAC) in March 2002 replacing Mr John MacLeod whose appointment as Chairman concluded in September 2001. I take this opportunity to thank Mr MacLeod for his significant contributions to the work of the ABS over 18 years as a member of ASAC.

Professor Harding is Dean, Faculty of Business at the Queensland University of Technology. At the same time Senator the Hon. Ian Campbell, Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer, made a number of other new appointments to Council. We look forward to working with Professor Harding and other members in improving the overall value of the statistical service.
