New South Wales Election Update
The position in NSW is that there are two positions to be contested, one for a two year term and the other for a one year term. There were two candidates nominated for these positions, Mr Allan Preston and Mr Graham Smith. Mr Preston feels that it is important that any new director has a full two year term in which to become familiar with the workings of The Society and in order to achieve goals. Mr Preston has elected to take the one year position which means that Mr Smith will take the two year position unopposed.
At the time that the Board advised members that the nominations were open Mr Preston expressed that he would not re-stand due to some health issues that he was awaiting results for. Since that time he has been given a clean bill of health and therefore has nominated.
Western Australian Election Update
There were two candidates nominated for the position in Western Australia, Ms Karen Fletcher-Grieve and Mrs Jacqueline Marsh. Mrs Marsh has withdrawn her nomination for the Board of Directors and as a result Ms Karen Fletcher-Grieve will be elected to the position of WA Director unopposed.
