All Ship All Shore from the National VP.

To SAA Members,


As most of you would be aware, SAA ACT have had to make the difficult decision to cancel SUBCON 21 mainly because the risk and uncertainty surrounding Covid was deemed too high.  The branch also undertook a number of surveys to see how many members would be attending.    At the last survey (undertaken last week) there would not have been enough representatives from the National Executive, National Committee or their representatives,  or financial members to conduct an AGM.  The AGM is the cornerstone of a SUBCON and last year we were also due to hold an election of office bearers (which of course did not happen).

 With the cancellation of Holbrook SUBCON 21 SAA WA have agreed to host SUBCON 22 (and I have been informed have appointed a SUBCON planning committee), for which I am sure planning will commence in due course and then more information will become available.

 As of this year we would have been 4 years without an election,  and therefore the National Executive are investigating a number of possible actions until we can actually hold an AGM in person at a SUBCON,  hopefully at SUBCON 22, those actions include:

  1. If the incumbents are happy to continue in their current roles the National Executive would stay the same until 2022, or
  2. If any members wish to nominate for a position on the National Executive we would investigate holding a virtual election.         

 I hope all members are keeping safe in these very trying times and hopefully we can get to WA next year and have a great week.
