Introducing the Sue Beeton Achievement Award       


The Sue Beeton Achievement Award (SBAA) was established by the Board of TTRA Asia-Pacific Chapter in 2016 to honour the vision, commitment and leadership of Prof Sue Beeton in the founding and enduring success of the Chapter.

The SBAA is awarded to the person (or persons) who have made an outstanding contribution to the past, present and future success of the Chapter and the internationalisation of TTRA.

Recipients of the SBAA are selected by the Chapter President, Vice President and Sue Beeton. The SBAA is only awarded in those years when there is a candidate (or candidates) deserving such recognition.


Presenting the Inaugural Sue Beeton Achievement Award, 2016


Our Chapter is run entirely by volunteers, so we often need professional support from a dedicated team. Consequently, those who provide us with this support is critical to our success.

One person has gone above and beyond the call of duty in this regard ever since I began to seriously consider founding TTRA APac. Regardless of the time of day or night she has always responded promptly and supportively to our many requests and seamlessly integrated our needs into that of TTRA overall.

The 2016 Sue Beeton Achievement Award Winner:

Kathy Palmer



As a chapter, we don’t pay any of her salary, but reap the benefits of her experience and passion. Late night/early morning calls and responses to our many requests, large and small, has supported us more than she would realise and gives us a direct link into the organisation as a whole.

Until Treeline came on board, I was not prepared to even consider starting this Chapter as we needed people who could take a long-term perspective in an organasition which progresses its Executive annually. While setting up the Chapter, I worked with four different Presidents, but only one Executive Director!
