AAN Revival

posted 26 Oct 2014, 12:52 by Shane West

At an informal Committee meeting in Oslo on 14 October 2014, it was agreed that AAN should not be disbanded, but opportunity given to a new Committee to revitalise the organisation.  This will be very much a team effort and an Interim Committee was appointed to achieve the above and to hold elections for a new ongoing Committee as soon as practical.

The plan is to have a newly elected Committee in place and up and running by 01 January 2015.  It will then develop an events calendar for 2015 and confirm arrangements for its first gathering on Australia Day, Monday 26 January 2015.

Members appointed to the Interim Committee are:

A significant team effort is required by the Interim Committee to achieve AAN renewal and all and any suggestions from you shall be warmly received.  Please co-operate and contact any of the above Executive.

Likewise it is very important that the above vacancies be filled and this is obviously a priority.  Any Member willing to help should please contact any Executive Member.  The Interim Committee feels that it is essential to meet the changed needs of AAN Members, whilst developing a program that embraces the traditional Aussie national celebrations and commemorations.  New sponsorships shall be sought to support these activities.

Please direct your comments on any aspect of the above to an Executive Member.  We very much look forward to your support for a truly refreshed New Year for AAN.
