in brief Australian Telecommunications User Group (ATUG) long-serving managing director Rosemary Sinclair has stepped down from the role to take up a position at the Australian School of Business at the University of New South Wales.

Sinclair, who has been in the role for the past 10 years, will have her role filled for the next three months by former Communications Alliance CEO Anne Hurley while the board searches for a permanent replacement.
"The Board is especially pleased that Anne, a person well-known and respected in the industry, has been able to join ATUG during this time," the board said. "Anne has indicated to the Board she will not be a candidate for the vacant position and her experience and skills are best used to maintain organisational stability during the search for the permanent Managing Director."
The board thanked Sinclair for her time in the role, noting the significant events in the industry over that time, including the dotcom bubble and the development in broadband in Australia leading to the Federal Government's National Broadband Network project.
