The NSW/ACT 2016 Annual General Meeting was held on July 23rd, at Hunters Hill Community Hall. 

Following a BBQ luncheon, President, Lynley McNab, openied the meeting and presented a sweeping report of the key events, activities and milestones of 2015/16, including -
  • Hosting of the AANZPA Annual Conference
  • Delivery of two very successful professional development days
  • 4 members - Marlene, Jenny, Gerry and Jo - achieving AANZPA accreditation as practitioners
  • Annie Fisher being made a Distinguished Member of AANZPA
  • and lots more. It was certainly a big year!!
Lynley also farewelled and thanked Helen Kearins and Desley Creedy, who have decided to step down as Committee members, for their invaluable contributions to the life of the region. 

Jenny Postlethwaite delivered the Treasurer's report, taking the somewhat unconventional approach of using a packet of chocolate mint biscuits to concretise how the funds position of the region had changed over the financial year. We had a few less biscuits in the biscuit barrel at the end of the year, due to our focus of efforts on organising the Conference and a number of new initiatives (such as complementary 1 day professional development workshops) trialed by the Committee.

Katherine Howard, acting as Returning Officer for election of the Committee for 2016/2017, did an excellent job of guiding us through the election process. Three new members joined the Committee - Yehoshua, Tina Roussos and Jo Dewar. The new Committee consists of -
  • President    Lynley   
  • Secretary    Yehoshua
  • Treasurer    Jenny    
  • Committee Members    Lynne, Penny, Tina, Jo and Willi
