Burnet Institute’s 2018 Annual General Meeting was a historic milestone, with our first woman Chair, Ms Mary Padbury presenting the Annual Financial Report to members, and supporters of our work.

Ms Padbury paid tribute to her long-serving Board member and outgoing Chair, Mr Rob Milne for his almost two decades of service.

“We benefitted enormously from Rob’s leadership and he made a significant contribution to the Institute, putting us on a solid footing,” Ms Padbury said.

Burnet Director and CEO, Professor Brendan Crabb AC highlighted a highly successful year across many indicators.

“We grew significantly in turnover (to more than $47 million) and developed new work, but these are just a small measure of performance,” he said.

“2018 was also a very successful year for the Institute in terms of how much we achieved towards our Mission, and answering some of the biggest global health issues on which we focus.

“The big global challenges that we are taking on can’t be achieved on our own, but with our many partners and supporters.”

Professor Crabb also extended his thanks to the Board, his leadership team, Burnet staff and students, our donors and supporters, but most importantly to the many communities we work with, and for.
