After nine years at the helm Mick Duncan decided not to stand for another term as President of the Grassland Society of NSW at the recent AGM (September 25) in Orange. In the election for office bearers David Harbison was elected unopposed as the new President.
David is a Director of DR Agriculture Pty Ltd, Molong and would be well known to many of our members. David has been an active member of the Grassland Society of NSW management committee for a number of years and was the conference convenor at the 2011 conference at Bathurst. David is looking forward to the challenges ahead as President and would welcome input from all members on the future direction of the Grassland Society of NSW.
The management committee on behalf of the members would like to thank Mick Duncan for his commitment and dedication during his time as President over the past nine years and look forward to his continued contribution as a committee member.
The election of the remaining positions on the management committee were
- Vice President – Lester McCormick
- Treasurer – Frank McRae
- Editor – Carol Harris
- Committee – John Coughlan, Hugh Dove, Nathan Ferguson, Keith Garlick, John Ive, Hayley Pattison and Warwick Wheatly.
