Audax 2021 AGM, Election & Awards

On 9 February 2021, the Audax Australia Annual General Meeting was held in various locations and utilised teleconference facilities. The following is a summary of the AGM.

It has been a challenging year with droughts, bushfires and a pandemic, the club with its voluntary management and strong balance sheet has been able to weather the storm with a relatively small deficit for the year and no serious impact. This is a credit to the many people who have contributed an enormous amount of time and energy over many years. Over the last year, there has also been a rationalisation of the club regulations and rules.

Awards

The reason many attend the AGM is the awards, and this year a Lifetime Membership was presented to Peter Heal.
