The directors of Football Federation Australia (FFA) today granted a request from fellow director, Heather Reid, for approval of an indefinite leave of absence from the Board.
The request is to enable Ms Reid to give full focus to her health and well-being following the requirement, after her election to the Board in November, to undergo chemotherapy treatment for a medical condition.
In the circumstances, Heather has requested that the Members of FFA and the football community understand her decision to step aside and respect her and her family’s privacy at this challenging time.
Speaking on behalf of FFA, Chairman Chris Nikou extended FFA’s best wishes to Ms Reid “Our thoughts are with Heather and her family and we wish her a full and speedy recovery” he said.
