One of the signs of a healthy Association is competition for spots on its Board and this year we had 11 nominations for the five vacant positions from an outstanding field of candidates.
Unfortunately in any election some people miss out and we would like to take this opportunity to thank Craig Baills, Paul Carlsson, Heath Moore and Eden Shirley for their nominations.
This year’s election also signalled a ‘changing of the guard’ to an extent with the retirement of three long standing members of the AAAA Board in David Fraser, Bob Pattison and Paul Dumbrell, who had a combined service of 36 years.
Our Association, and the wider industry, has been fortunate to have benefited from their stewardship, wisdom and leadership and on behalf of the AAAA Board, staff and members we would like to express our gratitude for the contribution these three outstanding gentlemen have made during their time on the AAAA Board.
We’re sure you’ll join us in wishing the new Board well as they help set the future direction of the AAAA and ensure that we deliver new activities and services that are valued by you.
