Larry King

From 1997 to 2013 Larry King was the Executive Director of the Law Society of the Australian Capital Territory. His background is in industry associations where he gained his experience in issues management, general management and turning good ideas - mostly other people’s - into reality. In those capacities he has served the housing, building and construction and manufacturing industries in addition to the legal profession. Larry has contributed to the work of numerous private sector and government committees, task forces and working groups. He is chairman of the Capital Region Community Foundation, known as GreaterGood. For 14 years he kept his feet on the ground as Treasurer of the Wamboin Bush Fire Brigade. Retirement has rekindled his interest in local government and the affairs of his rural residential community.
