Message from the Branch Chairman:

I am honoured to have been appointed as your Chairman for the coming year and look forward to working with you all to enhance the standing of our Association in our region.

I particularly look forward to working closely with the Committee to bring our expectations to reality. I most sincerely thank Len Goodman AO for his personal efforts and leadership over the past two years as our Chairman. There is no doubt that, under Len’s guidance, we have advanced the cause of the
association right across our area of influence.

I thank those who took the time to attend our AGM. This is the time for each of us to be involved in the operations of the Association and make our feelings known. I am pleased to report that there was a general feeling that the Association was achieving its aims and that it was in good shape. The AGM has
given the Committee a number of issues to consider and I am especially conscious of the challenge to consider returning to the arrangement where we subsidised all new recipients at their first function invitation.

This is a good move, but we will need to raise additional funds for this. With this in mind, I hope that we can have a black-tie evening early in the New Year, with some associated fundraising, so that we can make an attempt to build our financial resources.
Every good wish for the coming festive season and I look forward to our continuing to work for the benefit of the Association – and Australia.

Derek Robson AM
