John Price FACS has made an outstanding contribution to the ACS, and to the ACS Foundation Board which he joined in 2008. Consistently generous with his time, he has unstintingly supported the ACS as a member and Fellow, and as a Board member in ACS Foundation.
As an ACS Fellow John developed and presented a series of presentations on Emotional Intelligence, Career Development and Interviewing Skills to NSW Branch members. He delivered the Ethics component of the ACS Professional Year Program and assisted in designing a Communications Skills Course. John constructed and presented ICT career/ interview skills workshops on multiple visits to 8 Australian universities, plus workshops for NSW members. John then developed a multi series Webinar on the same subject, which is still in use today.
Appointed to ACS Strategic Initiatives Advisory Committee in 2012 – 13, he led planning workshops with the CEO on brand leverage and joint marketing with ACS Foundation. During this time John mentored two ACS Presidents in ACS governance and key strategic human resource matters.
In 2014 John was invited to become Chief Judge of Australia's longest running, innovation recognition awards by its steering committee. He was subsequently commended for his leadership and tireless effort in making the event an outstanding success during a challenging year.
Since 2015/16 John has continued mentoring and coaching ACS members (some with disabilities) on workplace confidence and employment strategies. John’s contribution reflects his outstanding ability as an ACS Fellow and a Foundation Board member to achieve strategic and operational consensus between both organisations while contributing significantly to the daily work of each.
