ACOSS has warmly welcomed the announcement of Ms Susan Pascoe AM as the Government’s nominee Commissioner of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission.

“As the peak body for Australia’s community and social service sector, ACOSS has long championed the establishment of a national regulator for our sector and we hailed the Commonwealth’s commitment to establish the ACNC,” said ACOSS CEO Dr Cassandra Goldie.

“Since her appointment as Interim Commissioner for the ACNC, Ms Pascoe has worked tirelessly in the advancement of this important reform. She has built a strong and positive working relationship with the sector, while setting clear expectations about the independence and role of an effective regulator.

“ACOSS congratulates Ms Pascoe on her appointment. We look forward to continuing to work together to establish a strong, independent and effective ACNC as soon as possible,” Dr Goldie said.
