Appointment to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal

30 April 2015

Today I am pleased to announce the reappointment of Ms Elizabeth Anne Shanahan as a part-time Member of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for a period of three years.

The Administrative Appeals Tribunal provides independent merits review of administrative decisions made by Australian Government ministers, agencies and other tribunals.

Ms Shanahan was first appointed to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal as a part-time Member in 1991 and has served the Tribunal with distinction. She is an experienced tribunal decision maker, who also serves on the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal and the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

Ms Shanahan is cardiothoracic surgeon and a certified mediator, whose continuing contribution to the Tribunal is highly valued.

I would like to congratulate Ms Shanahan on her reappointment and look forward to the continuing contribution she will make to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
