2023 AGM

Updated by Secretary on Nov 21 2023

Thank you to our members and friends who attended the Rottnest Society AGM, which was held on the 23rd October 2023.

We would like to introduce and welcome our newest committee member, Paul Reif. Paul has joined us on our planting weekends, and has some great ideas for the Rottnest Society's future work on the island. Welcome Paul and thanks for joining the committee!

We said a fond farewell to Eric Moxham, our Chairperson for the last 15 or more years. We thanked Eric on the night and Tania presented a special poem she had penned in Eric's honour. Eric will be sadly missed and we thank him for all his years of dedication to the Society. Ian MacRae was elected our new Chairperson.

Trish Bevan also retired from the committee and we thank Trish for her many years on the committee. Trish has served as Treasurer, Secretary, committee member and as an active volunteer at all our volunteer weekends.

We heard from Jason Banks, Executive Director of the Rottnest Island Authority. Jason presented the RIA's plans from the RIA's management plan and answered questions from our members.Thanks to Jason for attending and updating the Society.

The Committee would like to wish all our members and volunteers the best for the upcoming holidays, and we hope to see you in 2024. Our dates for the 2024 weekends will be released in the new year.
