Accord Steering Group

The Transformation Plan was developed by a steering group made up of leaders from across industry and government. The Group will oversee the initial implementation of the plan and drive the culture change needed.

During the COVID-19 response period, additional members of the sector have been bought into the group to ensure a broader perspective.
