Valé and thank-you to our Deputy-Chair Gloria Ryan

BUSHkids Council member Gloria Ryan was legally trained and enthusiastically contributed to all aspects of our contracting matters, supporting BUSHkids with legal input, comprehensively advising on the Scheme’s Policies and Procedures and navigating our trademark’s 12-month registration process – just some of Gloria’s many professional contributions voluntarily given to support our organisation over more than a decade of service.

Council member         •         June 2009

Deputy Chair         •         November 2014

Passed away         •         April 2021


“Gloria certainly made a great contribution to BUSHkids over a number of years. She was a lovely person, always greeting you with a welcoming smile.

“Gloria was one of those people who did not seek thanks or acknowledgement. She once told me she had a very soft spot for BUSHkids – clearly an understatement.

“I feel privileged to have shared experiences in the 12 years we served together on BUSHkids’ Council. So generous with her talent and time, Gloria will be sorely missed.

“Her empty chair at our Council Meetings will be a sad reminder of the friend we have lost.”
