Science, fun and fine food: our 2018 AGM and Threatened Species Forum!
Posted on 15 November, 2018 by Tanya Loos
On Saturday 10 November 2018, some 60 people gathered at Campbells Creek Community Centre to enjoy an afternoon of science, fun and delicious food. The event combined Connecting Country’s Annual General Meeting for the 2017-2018 year with a threatened species forum to launch our new ‘Habitat health check’ project. We celebrated the findings and achievements of Connecting Country’s long term monitoring programs with presentations by two very special scientists who directly support these programs: Professor Andrew Bennett and PhD Candidate Jess Lawton.
We would like to thank the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust for generously supporting ‘Habitat health check’, and to our presenters and all the committee members, staff and volunteers who assisted with the event.
Our AGM was short and sweet, and all but one of our committee members have re-elected for another year! The hard-working Connecting Country committee must be thanked for their considerable contribution to our organisation.
Elected members of Connecting Country’s 2018-19 committee of management are:
President: Brendan Sydes
Vice President: Saide Gray
Treasurer: Max Kay
Secretary: Marie Jones
Ordinary member: Karoline Klein
Ordinary member: Malcolm Trainor
Ordinary member: Christine Brooke
