Welcome to Megan Mckrill

I am pleased to announce that after our recent Board recruitment exercise, that Megan Mckrill (pictured) has joined our Board effective from our April Board meeting. Megan will commence in the Deputy Chair role and will take on the role as Chairperson after the AGM in October 2024.

Megan Mckrill is the CEO of OVIS Community Services (formerly Pat Thomas House), who are the leading provider of family and domestic violence services in the Peel Region. She is a qualified lawyer and brings over 14 years of experience in the legal and community services not-for-profit sectors.

Megan has significant board experience having sat on the OVIS board for over 3 years holding the positions of Chairperson, Vice Chairperson and Secretary. Megan currently sits on the Peel Community Development Group board and Peel Says No To Violence committee. Megan has lived experience of mental ill-health and is the carer of a person who is a consumer of mental health services. Megan has a strong passion for advocacy and elevating the voice of consumers of the mental health system.

As Megan starts, Kayla Schembri, our Board Chair, has relocated to New York. Kayla will continue to be the Chairperson until the AGM in October, Zooming in for Board meetings up until then. Kayla has already been headhunted to sit on the Global Stewardship Board of the Global Centre for Risk and Innovation, which includes amongst other things, liaising with the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund, ahead of the UN ‘Summit for the Future’ in September 2024.

Kayla joined the Board in March 2020 and stepped into the Chairperson role in October 2022. Kayla is an international leader in corporate governance, and we were extremely fortunate to have her on the Board for the time we have.

Kayla has been (and will continue to be) a great support for myself, as well as a great ambassador for CoMHWA, and has led the Board to becoming a high performing team that supports and guides myself, at the same time as holding me to account for our performance. I don’t think we could have achieved everything we have as an organisation in the past 12 months, without Kayla and the Board’s vision, guidance, and support.

Members will have an opportunity to meet Megan in the coming months including our Special General Meeting that will be held on Wednesday 29th May.

So thank you Kayla, and welcome Megan.

Darren Munday

Chief Executive Officer
