WOMEN IN MARITIME
Jeanine Drummond and Jillian Carson-Jackson are forging ahead with our
Women in Maritime initiative. There was a very successful workshop held
at HMAS Watson in Sydney earlier in March. Have a look at the Newsletter
in our new Women in Maritime page.
There are vacancies coming up on our branch committee soon, including
Chair, ACT Rep, NSW Rep and general committee member. If you feel you
could give a little of your time to help I would be very grateful. Give
me a call or email me (details below).
THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
The AGM for the branch will be held at the Occidental Hotel in Sydney at
5pm on Wednesday 9th May. Please come along if you can. If you cannot
attend in person there will be a phone conference number to dial in.
Details and papers will be in the members area soon.
I shall be canvassing opinion on whether the members believe it is a
sensible idea to split the branch into two separate branches (ACT/NSW
and VIC/TAS/SA). If agreed this will be done in may 2019. The survey
will be sent to members by individual email. Please reply so that I can
have the members views ready for the AGM.
NEW PAPER BY MIKE ASHBY
Please have a look at the new supplementary paper by mike Ashby on the
Master-Pilot relationship in the members area (contact me if you have
forgotten how to log in). If you have any feedback for Mike please let
me know and I shall pass it on.
My best regards to you all
