TREAT's 38th Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 4th September at the Yungaburra Community Hall commencing at 7.30pm. Presentation of annual reports by the Nursery Manager, Treasurer and President will be followed by the election of TREAT office bearers for the next year. Nominations are invited for the various positions on the TREAT management committee and will be accepted until 20th August. A list of nominees will be available for viewing at the nursery by members for 2 weeks prior to the AGM. Members are reminded that they must be financial when voting for the new committee. Subscriptions will be accepted at the AGM. A General Meeting follows the AGM.

Supper will be available following the talk, with all current Covid-19 rules and restrictions observed.
