Liana Allan resignation from the management committee of Migration Alliance

Dear Migration Alliance Members

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you all on the board of Migration Alliance Inc.

I have decided to resign from the position of Secretary, immediately.

This is a difficult decision for me as I have dearly loved serving on the management committee of Migration Alliance since its inception.

It has been clear to me that it is best for me to step down, for the sake of mending the relationship with the Department.

I will continue to hold Migration Alliance in a special place in my heart, until my last breath.

Should you wish to contact me, I am available on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 0405188262.

Your Sincerely

Liana Allan

Founder - Migration Alliance

    Liana, I agree with Sharon and many others about the fact that the Department is unlikely to change the way that it currently operates, whether or not you continue your active involvement.

    The foundation of MA, which you built, is strong and stands tall on its values and its objectives; you were key in these and THAT won't be forgotten. Neither will the meetings, the strategies, the letters, the discussions, the consultations and the 'taking on' of issues' in major capital cities on behalf of our members - most organisations are happy to maintain the status quo and 'just keep swimming' but not MA - we like to be out there, where we're needed most.

    Advocacy is what MA does best; many may, or may not, agree with its approach to it but if it gets the issue on the table - discussed and followed through - then it is being effective, even if it gets into hot water as this is part and parcel of being responsive.

    I've had the privilege of being part of MA's executive for some time, experiencing first hand the work that you do and your commitment to the Industry. You have inspired many and have supported many more and I am sure you will continue to do so in any way you can; there's a dearth of bold and outspoken people in this world and you need to keep it up.

    Thanks for all of your input over the years and your vision; the Industry is all the better for it and MA will continue to do what it does best - sort through the confusion, empower its members and raise issues which are key to being proactive. Don't wonder off too far...
