A well known industry leader has been named the chair of IAHSA’s board.

Australian aged care leader Glenn Bunney has been named the chair of the board of the International Association of Homes and Services for the Ageing (IAHSA) for 2009-2010.

The announcement was made at IAHSA’s international conference in London.

Mr Bunney is the CEO of Sundale Garden Village, a community based provider of residential aged care, rehabilitation services and retirement living on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.

He is a well known figure in the Australian aged care sector, having served as the president of Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) from 2003 to 2007.

Mr Bunney is also a founding director of Eden in Oz and has been involved in the National Aged Care Alliance and the Aged Care Industry Council.

Before working in aged care, Mr Bunney was executive director of an ISO certification company, and was also Chair of the Australian Association of Certification Bodies.

IAHSA is a membership organisation that represents the interests of over 20,000 ageing services which serve almost five million older people in close to 30 countries.

It was formed in 1994 by a group of international leaders who felt the need to respond to the global ageing crisis.

The association has become a forum for the exchange of international research, services, products and training.
