The Far South Coast Group of the CWA of NSW ,which consists of 10 branches from Batemans Bay to Eden ,held their Conference and AGM recently. The photo shows the office bearers for the 2020-21 period. The meeting was held at the Cobargo Showground as Cobargo Branch hosted the Conference this year and Kaye Anderson from Monaro Group took the chair for election of office bearers. Motions were ratified to be sent to the State Executive to be included in the State Conference next year. The Group accepted and voted on the Branches suggestions for a number of items to be sent to Head Office also such as International Country of Study and Medical Research and others.
The guest speaker was Daniel Doody who had just left ABC Radio Bega to prepare to take up a new position with Channel 10 in Sydney. He gave a wonderful speech and capped it off by singing an Abba song .His wife and young son,Reggie, had accompanied him much to everyone's enjoyment.
It was a lovely day and all the Branch members enjoyed meeting up with old friends and new for the day but numbers were restricted due to Covid requirements so there were no observers allowed this year."
