Coordinator's report in 'TOS Links' newsletter March 2018   By Rhonda Phillips

Thank you to the outgoing TOS Committee. The TOS held its AGM in January 2018 during the Brisbane convention. After seven years (and more) of service to the TOS Jean Carroll (National Coordinator), Travis James (National Secretary) and Carolyn Harrod (National Treasurer) have stepped down. For many years, they have dedicatedly set the direction of the TOS, building a strong TOS presence in Australia. Jean has actively encouraged the building of an Australian community. She has helped our far-flung states link together via newsletters and email. Encouraging us to share ideas, nurture friendships and foster a sense of community and TOS ideals.

This outgoing committee has diligently provided the vision and the unsung background work. The work that keeps the TOS functioning. There have been two re-writes of the constitution; and consistent and thorough management of the financial affairs of the TOS. We value their knowledge and experience and we hope that they will mentor the new committee as it starts its journey. We owe this committee a debt of gratitude and on behalf of the Australian TOS, I say Thank you, thank you.

I wish to welcome the new committee. Our secretary is George Wester from WA and many of you will already know him from his travels around Australia and to Adyar.  Dianne Manning, from Queensland, is our new Treasurer. She brings extensive business experience to the role and I am are grateful that she stepped forward.   Geoff Harrod, the Web Administrator, lives in Queensland. Geoff has managed the TOS website for many years and he has agreed to continue with these duties, which is great because I am fairly sure the rest of us would be pushed to fill the role.   (Read the full newsletter)
