Chat amongst friends before a 3-course lunch and listen to our outstanding GUEST SPEAKER – Elaine Canty AM, long-serving former Chairman of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria Board.
It is time to make plans for this event. Think about inviting some other Friends to join you at a table or you can leave it to us to place you at a table where you will meet others sharing the same passion for our Cranbourne Gardens.
Elaine Canty has been described as an Australian pioneer. Now she looks back on a life crammed full of remarkable achievements not only in the world of sports broadcasting, covering four Olympic Games, but also presenting daily current affairs and talk back programs for ABC radio and TV as well as running her own business. Controversially, she was the first female to be appointed to the AFL Tribunal. She has been a director of various sports and other organisations including the Royal Women’s Hospital and several not for profit organisations. She has also chaired a number of Boards including the Queen Victoria market and of course, most significantly to us, she is the immediate past and long serving Chairman of the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria. In 2015 her work across Australian media, sport and law was recognised with her appointment as a Member of the Order of Australia.
