(Ruth handles all conference logistics. But if it’s a query about conference registrations you have then Charmaine (below) – is your go-to.)
When Ruth came to Australia on a six-month working holiday from the UK, she met a tall, dark handsome vet in the ski fields of Thredbo and that was the start of her Australian odyssey. Her career path began in the UK in the tourism/hospitality sector and has encompassed managing a ski lodge, heading up convention bureaux in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, and managing conferences for up to 1,000 delegates. Her passion for the performing arts led her to a five-year sojourn in the arts industry managing a symphony orchestra and working for the Australian Bicentennial Authority. Today this same passion finds her singing in choirs and enjoying classical concerts. Ruth joined F&P in 2016, and appreciates the opportunity it offers to use her skills to contribute in a small way, to help our amazing members to do the incredible work that they do to make a difference in so many people’s lives. She has been married to the vet for 40 years and they are currently parents to one ‘fur baby’.
Charmaine has 20 years’ experience across a range of disciplines including: marketing, sales, event management, membership & stakeholder engagement. She has worked in manager and coordinator roles for global and national organisations such as BIG W, Everyday Rewards & Hearing Australia, as well as smaller business and more recently a not for profit. No matter your organisational size, she understands that members’ needs can be very different. She is keen to understand how she can best support you and encourages members to reach out with any questions and feedback. Outside of work Charmaine is kept busy managing her large, blended family with six sons and enjoys a game of tennis.

She is a dedicated exerciser, voracious reader, frustrated writer, wannabe domestic goddess and lover of the beautiful and slightly off-beat.
