Are you interested in joining the PTGAA committee to be able to contribute more actively to our Association?

Why not offer your services to be part of the 2018/2019 committee?
As part of the PTGAA constitution, all 12 committee positions are filled at our Annual General Meeting.

We are entering a very exciting time -we have made a significant step with the appointment of an Administration Manager and interest in the Association is continually growing.
The committee is still a very important part of what we do particularly in setting direction and prioritising activities. It is also a “hands on” role with, in accordance with Association rules, individuals required to assume statutory positions. We also envisage committee members taking lead roles in PTGAA member activities such as
Professional Development and Website Development/Maintenance.

We know that many of you have good ideas for improvement and we already have many initiatives in mind – we need drivers!
If you are interested, complete your nomination form or, otherwise, encourage fellow members to nominate.

Refreshments will be provided and a Guest Speaker will be announced closer to the date.

Stay tuned for details on how to nominate for committee 2018/2019!
