Jill Smith joined the Council for Aboriginal Alcohol Program Services Inc. (CAAPS) as CEO in July 2013 after two years in Operations and as State Director, Northern Territory for Mission Australia. Over the previous 20 years she worked with the Department of Community Services in the New South Wales far west region, based in Broken Hill, managing services from Corner Country to the South Australian and Victorian borders. Jill then had nine years with a Sydney based not‐for‐profit youth service managing residential treatment and community services.
