The Annual General Meeting of the Australian Native Bee Association Inc was held on Sunday 10 September 2023 from 1 to 1:35 pm in person at the Bulimba Community Centre, Brisbane, and virtually by Zoom.
The association annual report, financial report, branch reports and subcommittee reports had been circulated prior to the meeting and were accepted by vote. These reports will be published in the ANBA Annual to be printed and sent to all members in October.
There were proposed minor changes to the Rules of the Association which were voted in and will be become binding when accepted by the Office of Fair Trading.
The membership fees were voted to remain the same for the 2024-25 financial year at Concession – $35, Standard $50 and Industry – $100.
The new Management Committee, the board of approximately 20 who run the ANBA, were elected and appears on page 2 of this issue.
Congratulations and welcome to the members, new and continuing.
In particular, welcome to Dr Megan Halcroft as the new president. The ANBA president serves a maximum one year term only, this brings in new blood and fresh ideas. Following the AGM, incoming president Megan Halcroft gave a presentation on her topic “From community health to environmental health”, a delightful meander through her life long journey.
