AGM and Christmas Event in Review
Our AGM and Christmas drinks were a perfect way to round off a successful and busy year at AusBG. Once again a special thanks to HE Ambassador Arthur Spyrou and Mrs Britt Spyrou for welcoming our members and guest to the residence this year.
Ms Ellecia Saffron, our Chairman highlighted to our members the year in review and a financial summary for 2018. Mr Tyron Farrell, Vice Chairman then went on to present awards to our major sponsors for 2018; Etihad Airways Spinneys Liquor, Victorian Government, MLA, and PKF. Mr Farrell thanked our sponsors for all their support without which our success would not be possible.
The new Board was announced and introduced for 2019, followed by the announcement from AusBG Chairman Ms Ellecia Saffron that she would be standing down after five years as Chairman at AusBG. The ambassador thanked Ellecia Saffron for her long tenure with AusBG and four years as Chairperson. Reflecting on Ellies contribution to the Australian community, he thanked Ellie for her collaboration and hard work to ensure the success of the group and the representation of Australians in the UAE.
The formalities concluded with members enjoying premium Victorian wines from the Yarra Valley from both ]DeBortoli and Innocent Bystander and a delicious Aussie BBQ.
