Sandy McKiernan is the new Acting CEO at the Youth Affairs Council of WA (YACWA).
She replaces current CEO Ross Wortham while he takes a leave of absence for the birth of his first child.
Sandy is a long-time supporter and friend of YACWA. She brings over 15 years of leadership experience from the Leukaemia Foundation, the Cancer Council of WA and St Vincent de Paul Society, where she serves as WA Executive Manager of Specialist Community Services. In a statement, YACWA said they are excited to be under Sandy’s stewardship from May through to the end of the 2021, a period which will see them expand in regional reach, launch a brand new youth sector grant program and continue systemic advocacy for young people and the youth sector.
