Northern Beaches Region – Annual General Meetings
Due to COVID-19 there was no face to face AGM in 2020. However, the 2020 committee was elected and the current members can be viewed here. Let’s hope that next year’s AGM can go ahead.
13 March 2019 – AGM and 30 Year Anniversary Celebratory Lunch
The Annual General Meeting and 30th Anniversary Celebratory Lunch were held on Wednesday 13 March 2019 at the Long Reef Golf Club. As usual the Club came up trumps with a wonderful meal and excellent service.
President Rosemary McCulloch welcomed close to 100 members with a special welcome to Barbara Boston, the current Sydney U3A President, and Ruth Buchanan, immediate Past President of the Northern Beaches region. In her address the President noted the many new initiatives over the last year with the introduction of the Strolling Group, Opera and Lunch on alternate Sundays, a Craft Group, the appointment of a Welfare Officer and the Third Age Rock Orchestra to name a few. With the exception of Mike Williams, Publicity Officer, the committee was re-elected for the 2019 year and Ruth Buchanan noted her thanks for their sterling work during the past year.
The special guest speaker was Detective Superintendent Deborah Wallace, Commander of the State Crime Command Criminal Groups Squad, NSW Police Force, whose humorous talk was very much enjoyed by all.
Special thanks must be given to Gaye Pringle for her excellent organisation of the event.

This year’s AGM was held on Wednesday 14 March at the Narrabeen Baptist Church.
