OUTLine looking for new General Manager

Wed 29 Feb 2012 In: New Zealand Daily News View at NDHA

Vaughan Meneses OUTLine is on the hunt for a new General Manager, with Vaughan Meneses leaving the organisation to take up a corporate opportunity in Wellington. Meneses says he and his partner Clinton have been thinking about moving to the capital for quite a while, as they want to be closer to family. “After eighteen years in Auckland I feel it is time to go home,” Meneses says. “I initially intended to be at OUTLine for twelve months but that has turned into eighteen and I have enjoyed every minute. I feel really privileged to be part of an organisation that is so passionate about the wellbeing of our people. There are not many times in life where you have a role that is one hundred per cent focussed on making a difference.” Meneses will finish up at the end of March and take up his new Wellington based sales position in April. “I am returning to work in a sales role with The Radio Network, a job and a company I really enjoy. It will be a bit of a shock returning to the corporate world, but the opportunities for both of us in Wellington are too good to let pass by,” he says. OUTLine Chair Peter Martin is expressing thanks to Meneses for his contribution and energy. “We are a different organisation in many ways thanks to his dedication and drive. He will be greatly missed. “With change comes new opportunities and we will be actively looking for someone to bring their own contribution to the OUTLine team,” Martin says. Over the past few years OUTLine has continued to run a nationwide telephone support service as well as develop projects in the areas of mental health, alcohol and drugs, families, and aging communities. “During the past year we have been able to engage with a wide range of organisations in a collaborative way and this has meant that OUTLine has developed some strong and exciting partnerships with organisations such as Affinity Services, Auckland DHB, ALAC, and the Families Commission,” Martin continues. “Our community networks continue to strengthen and grow and we are looking forward to what the next twelve months will bring for the community.” You can discuss this New Zealand gay community news story in the GayNZ.com Forum
