Margaret’s life has always been lived within Guiding. Margaret is a past State Commissioner for Girl Guides Victoria, has been part of our GGV Executive Committee, and has sat on and chaired many sub-committees. Margaret is currently a member of, and is Vice-President of, the Olave Baden-Powell Society Board. Margaret has mentored many in their Guiding roles at every level within Victoria, Australia, and on an World level. Margaret’s commitment and professional approach in all she does makes her a very worthy recipient for this prestigious award.
Fiona has been a member of Guiding on a State and World level for almost 30 years. Fiona’s passion began while she was a Girl Guide in England. Fiona is currently Independent Chair of the Risk and Audit Committee for WAGGGS, and is a member of the Olave Baden-Powell Society.
