Australia — New senior member for Defence Reserves Support Council

Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary for Defence Sen­a­tor the Hon David Feeney today announced the appoint­ment of Mr Tony Behm to the Nation­al Exec­u­tive of the Defence Reserves Sup­port Coun­cil (DRSC) as its new Senior Mem­ber.
“Mr Behm recent­ly end­ed his six-year tenure as Chair of the Queens­land Com­mit­tee of the DRSC and brings to the Exec­u­tive wide-rang­ing expe­ri­ence and net­works devel­oped dur­ing that time,” said Sen­a­tor Feeney.

“As Senior Mem­ber of the DRSC Nation­al Exec­u­tive, Mr Behm’s long asso­ci­a­tion with Defence, both in uni­form and as a mem­ber of the DRSC, will pro­vide valu­able lead­er­ship, sup­port and assis­tance in guid­ing the Coun­cil in its sup­port of ADF Reserves.”

“Mr Behm’s strengths are his in-depth knowl­edge and under­stand­ing of the Defence Reserves and the key rela­tion­ships between Reservists, their employ­ers and the com­mu­ni­ty from which they are drawn.

“I would like to thank Mr Richard Bluck for his excel­lent ser­vice and sup­port to the Exec­u­tive dur­ing the past three years, and also his 20 years of ser­vice to the DRSC more gen­er­al­ly. Cer­tain­ly a job well done.”

The DRSC aims to enhance the avail­abil­i­ty of the Reserve com­po­nent of the ADF by pro­mot­ing the ben­e­fits of employ­ing Reservists. It also aims to estab­lish a flex­i­ble part­ner­ship with the com­mu­ni­ty and employ­ers so they are encour­aged to sup­port Reservists.

Each state and ter­ri­to­ry has com­mit­tees of the Coun­cil and some also have com­mit­tees in the larg­er region­al cen­tres. Coun­cil mem­bers are vol­un­teers and include rep­re­sen­ta­tives from indus­try, small busi­ness, trade unions, youth and oth­er inter­est­ed com­mu­ni­ty groups.
