AGM Report
The 2019 Annual General Meeting was held on Saturday night 20 July at Bendigo, Victoria, in conjunction with the Australian Sheep and Wool Show. This event was well supported by members, with Australian Wool Network as our guest speakers prior to the AGM. The association would like to thank AWN for their presentation.
After two years on Council, Murray Rogerson has stepped down. Murray’s contribution to the breed has been enormous; three years as Victorian president and numerous as Vice President and four years heading up the Show and Sale Subcommittee. Although only a one term Councillor, Murray’s input has been invaluable and gave three in depth Power Point presentations during his tenure.
