2019 GAMAA FINALIST: Rebecca Milliner


Rebecca Milliner
Events and Marketing Coordinator, Cairns RSL Sub-branch

By her singular efforts, Rebecca has raised the profile of the Sub-Branch's Kokoda Hall Museum to achieve a level of community engagement unsurpassed in the history of the Museum. Rebecca has delivered these outcomes by implementing three key initiatives:

  • Effective promotion of the Museum through Sub-Branch periodicals, social media and advertising to the general public;
  • Developing and implementing an educational initiative for school students involving tours of the Museum, themed toward and commemorating the November 2018 Centenary of Armistice, including an interactive activity titled The Armistice Centenary First World War Treasure Hunt; and
  • Capitalising on these successful outcomes by promoting further comprehensive and educational school tours of the Museum.

Rebecca has demonstrated an exemplary level of professionalism, commitment and vision in dedicating hours of her time to planning, development and execution of the Armistice treasure hunt and commemorative activity, and in her contributions toward promoting the Kokoda Hall Museum and defining its strategic direction.

She has become a role model and mentor, inspiring other Sub-Branch staff and volunteers to similar levels of professionalism and commitment, and raised the profile of the Cairns RSL Sub-Branch to achieve recognition as a valued contributor to the Cairns community.
