David HorsellDavid first joined the CEGSA committee (as it was known then) in 1995, when he was working at the Special Education Resource Unit (SERU).

In the 18 years that David has dedicated to the committee, he has contributed to the organisation of many state and national conferences. In his final role for EdTechSA, he has been instrumental as our association representative on the Council of Education Associations. We are particularly grateful for the work he has done on securing grants for professional learning activities for members and facilitating joint events with other associations. David’s dedication has been demonstrated by his ability to attend management meetings even when he has other family and professional commitments.

He may not have been around long enough to “see the trams come and go and come back again” as the bank ad says … but he certainly has seen the national conference come around to Adelaide twice (1998, 2004) and almost a third time at the end of this year (2014).

Given David’s outstanding dedication to the CEGSA and EdTechSA committees over the past 18 years, I would like to propose that the members here tonight support a vote to induct him as a life member into our Hall of Fame.
