Annual General Meeting - 1 March 2017

Alan, in his fourth and final Chair’s Report, touched on some of the highlights of 2016, which included nine joint technical meetings with the IMarEST (Sydney Branch), with attendances varying between 46 for Nick Browne’s presentation on Australia’s New Antarctic vessel, and 21 for David Lyons’ presentation on Research and Development of Marine Design Rules for Curved Composites Subject of out-of-plane Loads.
SMIX Bash 2016 was successful and was attended by about 200, including a number of interstate guests.
Adrian Broadbent presented the Treasurer’s Report. The EA venue at Chatswood had, as usual, been our major cost for the year. However, with a close watch on the outgoings, we had managed to operate within our budget and have a grand total of $1086 in the Section account at 28 February 2017. SMIX Bash is funded separately through the Social account which currently has a healthy balance, although there are accounts still to be paid, but projections are for a small surplus to enable preliminary arrangements for SMIX Bash 2018.
The present committee members have all agreed to serve for a further term. However, Alan Taylor has served his maximum four-year term as Chairman and has stepped down, with Valerio Corniani stepping up to the position of Chairman. Nate Gale has stepped up to the position of Deputy Chairman, and agreed to chair the SMIX Bash Committee for one further year. The NSW Section is also represented on the Australian Division Council by Craig Boulton as Treasurer.

As a result, the NSW Section Committee for 2017 is as follows:
