MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL PRESIDENT

9 July 2020 

AIB National Office – New Executive Director – Geoff Dart 

This week I am pleased to confirm the role of leading the Australian Institute of Building from our Canberra based office has been finalised, and we welcome Mr Geoff Dart as the new Executive Director of the Australian Institute of Building. Geoff will be joining us in the week commencing 20 July and he comes with a wealth of industry experience. We believe that this will complement the role of leading our Institute operations as we navigate the changed landscape that is evolving around the value of professional building construction needed in COVID times.

Geoff is currently relocating from Melbourne to take up this appointment, and he will quickly become a regular contributor that you will see in both our social and advocacy platforms. He joins us in challenging times when our industry is now clearly redefining construction operations and experiences focused on a ‘long term normal’ being significantly different from anything we could have imagined just 12 months ago.

I hope you take the time to contact Geoff once he settles in, and you will start to see his contributions to members and partners once he joins us officially in late July.

We wish Geoff and his family, every success for the future.

David Burnell FAIB
National President, Australian Institute of Building
