The Association has recently changed our website to provide a fresh new look, easier administration and most of all, a range of new services for members. These include a member "self service" section you can update and maintain your own details, renew your membership, get in contact with other members through the Member Directory and chat with other members via the new discussion forums. Karen will be in contact with each member in the coming weeks to provide you details about how to log in to the new site, we hope you will enjoy the change and make the most of the new services available. We also welcome your feedback and input into how we can continually improve it.
There have also been some changes to the Committee following the recent AGM held in Cowra in September. We farewell former President Matt Grigg, long term Committee member Lorrelle Orrman-Watson and former Treasurer Chris Ashdowne who served the Association in that role for 18 years and is due for a well earned rest!
The Executive Committee positions were decided during last night's Committee Meeting and I'm humbled to have been elected to the position of President of what must be the most welcoming and harmonious aviation association in Australia.
We also welcome Mike Dalton into the position of Vice President and Helen Craven into the position of Treasurer. Kelly Strange continues in the role of Secretary which she has been performing diligently and very effectively for the past 2 years. We also welcome Darren Craven and Rod Luke to the General Committee and look forward to their contribution, skills and experience during the next 12 months.
There's plenty happening during the next 12 months with the many Antiquers events scheduled this year and next, the highlight being our National Fly-in at Temora in March celebrating 40 years of the Association. The Antiquers will also be well represented at the many airshows coming up including Temora, Point Cook and Tyabb.
Feel free to contact myself or any member of the committee with feedback, stories for Rag & Tube or just for a general chat.
