Announcement – New Committee STC OBA NSW & ACT 2019/2020
It is with great joy and satisfaction we announce the newly elected OBA committee for the forthcoming period 2019/2020. The new committee was appointed at the 2019 AGM concluded on Sunday 27th Oct 2019. Nominations were proposed by Graham Masefield & Seconded by Lal Wimalaratne.
2019 AGM was conducted in an atmosphere of friendship and comradery, interwoven with that intrinsic characteristic, “Thomian Spirit”. Whilst, Kulasiri Jayasinghe was elected President for another year, with him most current committee members will continue to serve, however, the highlight was the election of several new members. This will be the largest committee in the history of STC OBA NSW & ACT.
We thank all those who attended the AGM and others who sent their good wishes.
