President’s Message

A Message from the President

Welcome to the Industrial Relations Society of NSW (IRSNSW).

Having been a member of the IRSNSW for more than 12 years, and a member of the Executive Committee for the past 5 years, I am proud to be elected President of the IRNSW for this term.

Founded in 1958, the IRSNSW is the oldest industrial association in Australia. For 65 years the Society has promoted industrial relations as a field of study and practice. Today, the Society thrives on bringing like-minded people together to offer a platform rich for thought leadership and networking opportunities. We foster curiosity, debate and interest from all corners and from both sides of the political and ideological spectrum.

Our members span academia, state and federal government, HR and IR practitioners, union officials, students, lawyers, advocates, consultants and tribunal members.

My goal for this term is to build on the momentum of recent years, to expand the Society’s membership base and strengthen our event capability.

I look forward to working with the Society’s Management Committee as we meet  monthly to discuss activities of the Society, as well as general industrial relations and membership matters.

The Society is a member of the Australian Labour and Employment Relations Association which has organisations in all states and territories of Australia. The Australian Labour and Employment Relations Association has links with similar international organisations.

I encourage you to attend our events, participate in conventions and warmly welcome you as a member of the IRSNSW.

If you have any feedback or would like to contribute to a NSWIRS event, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Warm regards

Christa Lenard

2024-2025 IRSNSW Executive Committee
