Sunday, August 02, Annual General Meeting, Tasmanian Arboretum, Eugenana, start 10 am

The main business at the AGM is election of a Committee of 5 members to manage our group for the next 12 months, plus the appointments to other positions. At least one member of the Committee will not be standing for re-election. Please give some serious thought to offering your services in some capacity.

The Arboretum has a large meeting room of sufficient area to hold all members who attend the AGM. As per covid restrictions we will not have the usual shared lunch social occasion. Please bring your own food and drinks.

After lunch Philip Milner will guide a walk to show members the recent developments in the Arboretum's Australian Collection including a new path system traversing the western hill which links to the Tasmanian Collection. We will also observe the new plantings from last spring and autumn, including numerous Banksia, Hakea and Prostanthera which mark the initial stages of the further development of the Australian Collection.
