NSW Annual General Meeting – Details for the NSW AGM will be available on the NSW website in the near future. All members are most welcome to attend. As practiced for many years, the committee meeting following the AGM will involve the selection of judges for the 2014 Sydney Royal Easter Show, 2012 NSW Championship Feature Show, 2012 NSW Southern Districts Championship Show, the 2013 Northern Districts Championship Show and the 2013 Western Districts Championship Show. This allows members to nominate judges for these shows. In the past, the only members to attend the AGM have been those on the committee so it would be appreciated if members outside of the committee attend. Members who would like to join the committee are required to attend the AGM to be nominated and elected. I would like to point out that being on committee is a voluntary position. I would like to wish all members a safe winter. Sarah Moore
