Ms Butler replaces Ms Lee Thomas, who stepped-down from the role, in December, 2017.
The appointment of Ms Butler was resolved at an extraordinary meeting of the ANMF’s Federal Executive in Melbourne yesterday.
The Federal Executive appointed Ms Lori-Anne Sharp as the ANMF’s new Assistant Federal Secretary.
Mr James Lloyd, the President of the ANMF Tasmanian Branch, was appointed ANMF Federal Vice President, replacing Ms Sharp in that role.
Ms Butler, Ms Sharp and Mr Lloyd join the ANMF’s Federal President Sally-Anne Jones as Federal Executive Officers of the union.
The ANMF wishes to thank Ms Thomas for her commitment and dedication to the union and its growing membership, having served as Federal Secretary for eight years.
