I previously announced the AGMs date to be held on Friday, 5 October 2018.  I have had to change this date to Wednesday, 3 October 2018 due to a clash with the BIC National Conference changed from the traditional November date to 7 – 11 October 2018 in Cairns.  The AGMs will be held at Ascot Racecourse.  Please put this date in your diary.

Currently, I am trying to arrange a Regional Meeting in Busselton for the April school holidays.  While it will be open to all members, the aim is to try to capture those members who live in the south-west and who cannot get to Perth for the AGM due to the distances involved.  The likely dates will be Friday 20 or 27 April 2018 depending on the availability of the Busselton Football Club grounds.

The format will more likely be an information exchange about current matters i.e. Five-Year Review, Proposed 10% levy on Tour and Charter Operations, IR update followed by networking and fellowship.  I have had a few sponsors who are keen to support the event as it will be an opportunity for sponsors and supporters of BusWA to advertise or discuss their products.

PTA has already advised that they would participate, and I would think that On-Demand Transport (DoT) would also have a presence. If you have any feedback or would like to make a comment, please contact me.
