Congratulations to ACTA (and ATESOL ACT) Vice President Helen Moore on being awarded Membership (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia in the 2019 Queen's Birthday Honours List. Her award is for significant service to English language education and to community music. The award is a well-deserved recognition of her lifetime of service and policy activism to improve migrant English language provision in Australia and her achievements, among various endeavours, in securing a permanent performance space for the Canberra International Music Festival and other music events in the ACT.
