NSW President's Message

Dear ACS members and friends


This will be my last message as NSW President.


My time as NSW President was always going to be transitional and I believe the time to stand down has come much quicker than I thought.

As always it has been a privilege and a pleasure to serve however there are much better people who are willing to put up their hand and it is time for them to take the ACS into the future.

I must thank all those on the current committee and in particular:

Carolyn Constantine ACS -- Vice President
Velinda Wardell ACS  - Vice President
Aleksei Vanamois - Secretary
Sidat de Silva - Treasurer, "Unofficial Zoom Guru"
David Wakeley ACS  - Assistant Treasurer
along with Lizz Vernon - Newsletters/Web
and also Sissy Reyes, Kevin Hudson, Anna Howard ACS, 
Andy Taylor ACS, Susan Lumsdon, Ben Allan ACS CSI, 
Marcus Stimson
Chris Bland Tom Gleeson.

You have all done an outstanding job in these hard times.

Remember to keep your social distance and stay safe and healthy.


Calvin Gardiner ACS

NSW President
