Cathy Beaton’s work with the St Vincent de Paul Society to date has been focused mainly in the Riverland area and in 2016 she was elected as Regional President for the Riverland/Yorke region.  Cathy’s strong business background and vast professional experience in business development will see her continue to provide leadership, direction and a shared vision to the Society.  Ms. Beaton said “I’m looking forward to continuing to improve our business practices and sound governance for the St Vincent de Paul Society in South Australia and importantly to provide ongoing love, support, companionship and practical assistance to the companions we serve in our work.”

With a clear strategic direction, the organisation is following a path, which will help to ensure it continues to provide emergency assistance, food, shelter, comfort and friendship for those we assist.
