SRG president steps down

SRG president steps down Image

Southbank Residents’ Group (SRG) president Mabel Vargas will be stepping down from the role after the SRG Annual General Meeting in October.

Ms Vargas has been the president for a year and her time at the helm has seen sweeping changes to the association.

She initiated the expansion of the SRG online, upgrading the website and creating Facebook and Twitter sites. She also changed the membership structure to include whole building memberships, increasing the interest in the group in the area.

Ms Vargas said she simply did not have the time to commit to the role of president.

“I am now working full-time and am planning to study as well. I’m doing too much! I’m still going to be involved, just no longer as president,” Ms Vargas said.

She also said she’d been very thankful for the opportunity and had enjoyed the many things she had achieved in her time in charge.

When asked what she was most proud of, Ms Vargas said there were a number of things the team had achieved during her leadership.

“I think that we did a really good job at the Boyd launch and getting a meeting with the Lord Mayor to discuss issues important to us. I think we’ve got (our) name out there, all the time.”
