AGM : 2023

Monday 20th March

AGM of the Club at Remel 185, Whorouly

With about 40 members present, life member Adrian Twitt took the chair to manage the committee appointment process. He thanked Cecily Fletcher for her impressive work as president over the last 12 months, and acknowledged her wish to step down from the president role.

Bob Shaw extended his thanks to Cecily’s wonderful work in helping to even increase our club’s membership in difficult Covid circumstances, and for also taking leadership in last year’s large and complicated Federation Walks event. Helen Twitt presented Cecily with a gift in appreciation of her work.

Adrian conducted the nomination and the election procedure for office bearers and committee members. The main change was experienced walker Sandra Smith taking up presidential responsibilities, with most of the committee retaining their positions, and their obvious enthusiasm!

After a very yummy first course, Cecily introduced the talented ecologist, and now Beechworth resident, Richard Loyn, who spoke about the fascinating birds of the Warby Ranges which he has been studying for many years. Richard provided impressive scientific data on sightings and behaviour of our special avifauna from the last four years, and discussed the quite positive changes observed.
