Queen’s birthday honour for Margaret de Wit

Queen’s birthday honour for Margaret de Wit

margaret de wit

Margaret de Wit has been awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia in the General Division (OAM) for service to local government, and to the community of Brisbane. Margaret was the longest serving female City councillor in Brisbane history, with nearly twenty years representing Pullenvale Ward. She also served as a board member of the Australian Local Government Association and was the first female president of the Local Government Association Queensland.

Margaret has been a THECA member since our incorporation in 1998, and has served on the management committee for most of that time, including a year as acting president in 2016-17. She has been a great supporter of THECA, both in her official capacity as ward councillor and as a volunteer. We congratulate Margaret on the award, which is well deserved.
