Farewell and thank you to Alan Ibbett

This week we would like say farewell to Alan Ibbett, a long time supporter of CEnet and an advocate for inter-diocesan collaboration.

Alan was a foundation member of the CEnet Steering Committee and chair of the CEnet Corporate Services Standing Committee.
Alan recently decided to move on from the Wollongong Diocese where he has served both as CTO, and more recently, CIO for a total of 14 years. We wish Alan all the very best in his new role and thank him for the significant contribution he has made to supporting CEnet and member dioceses.
