Board of Trustees
2009 Board Election
Candidate: Narelle Clark
I am a data communications and Internet specialist who has been working in advanced technology areas consistently throughout my career. My day job is as Research Director of the CSIRO's Networking Technologies Laboratory. Specialising in the application of networks and systems, I have a broad technical view of Internet scale ICT delivery. I have been a user, builder, operator and researcher of Internet networks since 1986, both for major telcos and research agencies.
Over the last ten years I was employed by SingTel Optus in a range of roles from network architecture to the introduction of emerging technology. Back in the early days of the Australian Internet I was responsible for development and operation of campus networks and research labs doing medical and Internet software projects. I have a Bachelor of Applied Science and a Masters in Engineering, the latter majoring in information systems and telecommunications, as well as a postgraduate diploma in Management.
"This work has given me extensive organizational leadership experience (10 years of senior management in large organisations), including Board experience (10 years accumulated board experience spanning public and private sector, both commercial and not for profit). This has involved business and project planning,through to operation of Internet systems and services which I look forward to sharing with ISOC.
I have been involved in one of ISOC's strongest chapters, ISOC-AU, since it was formed in 1996, and its Vice President since 2003. During this time I have assisted in the compilation of a large number of submissions on Internet related topics, organised events and conferences, gained sponsorships and in kind contributions, as well as promoted the society and ISOC as a whole's contribution to society through its Internet activities."
