This is an annual award to an ASU member in the social and community services division who has shown outstanding and long-term commitment to both the ASU and our sector. The Award will be presented at a special event later this year and announced to all ASU members. 

Fran Teirney was the President of the Community and Disability Sector Division of the ASU from 1993 until when she retired in 2009. She was also on the Union’s Executive for the same period. Fran joined the Union when she started work in the sector in the early 1980s. She has inspired and mentored many ASU members and was awarded life membership of the ASU in 2009. Fran was and still is dedicated to the community sector and to her Union.
