Secretary's Report - 2020 AGM

Personal note

I would like the thank Tom, who was the secretary from 2016-19, and also a massive thank you to the committee and the community for its understanding during my term in 2019-20, October is when everything became rather hectic with fires burning over a wide area of NE NSW into SE QLD but after my second deployment in Nowra, I had questioned if I would be able to give the time required for the role but having to almost operate in my aviation role for a month during January. And COVID-19 came along, which is when I made the decision to step aside for the next term on the Committee to take sometime out. I had also been great working for the University of Sydney, working with Frances Di Lauro and Carrol Quadrio in Writing for the Digital World (OLES2129). Some great articles have come from the course and would jump at doing it again in the future.

What now? I will be focusing on taking sometime out but also start focusing on getting photos edited and uploaded onto Commons, will be undertaking aviation radio operator training next week in Dubbo and have taken on a secretary in my local brigade (though not as involved time wise).

I wish the new Committee all the best for the 2020-21 term but also into the future, I will still be helping out when asked.

Secretary's Report for 2019-20

Getting the back logged minutes published and to keep them published as soon as possible was one of my big goals, early on I was able to tackle this but once everything became rather busy, it was hard to do. I did have plans on making some changes with the category system and the way reports are displayed, however I wasn't able to fulfil the goal.

Though behind the scenes I was able to create a "Correspondence" page on the Committee wiki to make it way of seeing if something is outstanding with any incoming and outgoing Correspondence, whether it has been dealt with and the action taken.
