Secretary's Report 2023

From The Secretary's Desk

Welcome to members and guests to the 2023 AGM and Reunion Luncheon.

The Highlight for the Association these past few months was the successful application for funding under the Saluting Their Service Commonwealth Grants Program 2022-23, to enable the Association to migrate the web site from the existing Content Management System, which will not be supported beyond August 2023.  In October 2022, and on behalf of the Committee, Colin Bragg and David McDonald applied for a Grant of $10,000 through the Community Grants Hub. A very time consuming, lengthy and comprehensive application, and ultimately successful, was submitted. Congratulations on the fine achievement by Colin and David with the full support and assistance of the Committee. Grant Funds were accepted and approved by The Hon Matt Keogh MP (Minister for Veterans' Affairs Minister for Defence Personnel) in January this year, and will be managed by the Community Grants Hub. The Grant of $10,000 was deposited in the Association’s bank account in February 2023.
