MARGARET BATEMAN

Director
Port Macquarie Inc, Australia
District 24

Now retired, Margaret spent 50 years in the workforce—the last 25 years as electorate office manager for a Member of Parliament. Previously, she managed motels and a restaurant and was private secretary to the managing director of Hoyts Cinemas Australia. Her background in secretarial and business studies, together with a bachelor’s degree in politics and philosophy, are the foundations for her passion for advocacy and community service. Margaret first joined Zonta for a year as charter secretary of the Zonta Club of Darwin. She later joined the Zonta Club of Port Macquarie in 1998, which gave Margaret a “family” and focus. She has since served in leadership positions at club and district levels. Margaret plays golf and enjoys the company of friends.
