SPASA WA has appointed Sadie Davidson to the position of executive officer, effective April 12, 2021.
Davidson has a wealth of experience in advocacy, member-based associations and not-for-profit organisations. Her most recent role was as advocacy and policy manager with the Real Estate Institute of WA (REIWA). Prior to that she worked for the Property Council of Australia (PCA) as policy and communications officer.
She has also held committee positions with the Salvation Army, Metronet, the Housing Advisory Roundtable and has been a member of the board of the Finance & Property Service Training Council.
Additionally, she has worked as a journalist, winning the 2015 Rising Star Award for graduate journalists. She has a BA from UWA and is due to complete her MBA in business leadership at Curtin University in June.
Davidson says she is delighted to be joining SPASA WA at such an exciting time for the industry.
“The sector has proven to be resilient in even the most uncertain of times and is set to thrive in 2021 and beyond. I look forward to building on the great work of Bryce Steele and the team as well as meeting SPASA WA members at upcoming events including the annual golf day in April and the Awards for Excellence in July,” she says.
In a statement, SPASA WA said its primary objective is to promote the pool and spa industry, and further the standards, goodwill, ethics and reputation of the industry in WA.
“As executive officer, Sadie will have a pivotal role in achieving these objectives by supporting and growing the membership of SPASA WA and liaising with key stakeholders, such as State and Local Government and other industry associations, particularly SPASA Australia.
“Sadie joins SPASA WA at an important time for the industry, with strong growth currently being experienced in the pool building sector. Although new to the swimming pool and spa industry, Sadie’s experience and energy will stand her in good stead to build on the strengths of the current SPASA WA and lead the Association into the future.”
