2021 Annual General Meeting - Saturday, 8th May 2021

Thank you to the Queensland State Archives, Runcorn who hosted the 2021 AGM.  After the business of the meeting Niles Elvery, Senior Archivist at Queensland State Archives, gave an interesting presentation about the Archives followed by a Behind The Scenes Tour. It was an enjoyable day for all who attended both in person and by Zoom.

Insurance Renewal Time

Early in December, your society should have received the insurance proposal which must be completed and returned to our broker, Christine Reith - AJ Gallagher. It is very important that the completed proposal is sent to Christine as soon as possible because the information provided will form the basis of your renewal premium.
If you have not received the proposal please email or phone Helen Turner, HQ Insurance Officer - 0412 708 401  (Insurance Renewal was due 31 March 2021)
