Survey Update

Professor McCombe continues to receive completed surveys returned to the RBWH and has provided the support to have all the data from these surveys entered and available for analysis. It takes, on average, two hours for each survey to be fully entered. This is a very significant endorsement of the value of this survey work and indicates that it is important for people to still take the time to complete and return their survey.

Help! Help! MGAQ Needs a Secretary

At the AGM held on 11 September, the position of Secretary was vacant and no one was appointed to that position on the day. Since that meeting, one of our current management committee members, Anita Jackson, has been appointed to the position so that we meet our Constitutional and Legislative requirements. However, she has agreed to do this only on the proviso that we endeavour to find someone to take up the position on a longer-term basis.

Sponsorship Support

The MGAQ Inc. is very grateful to the anonymous private sponsor who has again renewed their donation as a major sponsor of the work undertaken by the MGAQ. This continued support is both rewarding and encouraging for those involved with the Association. Seeking such sponsorship remains a priority for the Association as government funding is interim only.
