Soon after the AGM, Debbie Grull gave notice that she was unable to take up her position on the SMC. A decision was made, under Rule 21.7, to offer the position to the next person on the pre-AGM ballot. The Returning Officer provided the information - Trent Huxtable. Trent has accepted the appointment and attended the meeting held on 13 March. Trent brings much knowledge with him and it’s hoped that he will take up a suitable role with specific responsibilities.
21.7 If a casual vacancy occurs in the office of ordinary committee member, the committee may appoint a member of the Association to fill the vacancy until the conclusion of the annual general meeting next following the date of the appointment.
