Most importantly, the new club constitution was unanimously adopted by those present.  Thanks again to Liam for all your hard work that enabled us to get to this point.

The following were nominated without opposition to form the ANB Committee for the next 12 months:

AGM 29th June - door prize announced!

NEW for this year's AGM.  We've had a book called 'Take a Walk in Southern NSW and the ACT' by John and Lyn Daly donated to the club by the authors.  The  book covers more than 2000km of walking tracks from Sydney south to the Victorian border with outline maps and detailed descriptions as well as a plethora of other information about the National Parks covered in the book. 

Highlights of Bushwalking NSW General Meeting 21st May 2019

- Speaker from NSW Sport on considerations and benefits of encouraging children and young people to join our clubs.  Several clubs have Child Protection Officers.  Speaker mentioned that it will soon be mandatory for clubs to implement child safety standards if under 18 year olds participate in their activities.  This is not just the physical safety or children.
