President's Report

Annual General Meeting

25 February 2018


Ladies and gentlemen 2017 was an interesting year to say the least.

There have been a number of improvements to the property, we have met all of our ceremonial commitments and maintained our good name in the community albeit with the difficulties caused by the apparent reckless and alleged illegal behaviour of some senior office bearers located in Sydney.

We have to continue to be vigilant to ensure that this type of behaviour does not occur here and to that end I will discuss with the trustees and executive members of the sub-branch committee on how we operate and ensure our systems meet the standards to ensure we are in a position to receive a full and faultless audit.

I thank you for your attendance today and look forward to the next 12 months working together with and for you.

Mark Dando


President's Report

October 2017


The past few months have been extremely busy which is somewhat unusual as it has always been accepted as the quiet period for the committee.

Since October 2016 to date we have provided RSL Tributes for 26 members and also for a number of non-members.

You may be aware that a hold has been place on all fundraising by RSL Sub-Branches until further notice.

The Bergin Inquiry into RSL NSW Headquarters activities should be completed and reported on to the NSW Government in February 2018.

The ACNC is also investigating RSL NSW as a whole regarding “Charitable Fundraising” some of which has not met the legal requirements under the Charitable Fundraising Act 1991.

After discussion with James Brown,the state president, it has been agreed that HQ will provide us with poppies to give away for Remembrance Day.

To this end it is my plan to have the school children do this. As a consequence there will be no “sitters” to conduct sales for Remembrance Day this year.

Veterans Health Week commences on the 21st October with Albury conducting a River Walk, followed by lunch at the RSL ANZAC House, so it will be good to see as may as possible present for this activity.

An early reminder that the Christmas Party is planned to be held on the Sunday 10th December this year and the office will close from 15th December 2017 until the 16th January 2018.

There will be an emergency phone number left attached to the front door.

Please remember that the monthly meetings are held on the third Sunday of each month excluding December and it is always good to see as many members as possible in attendance.

I would like to thank the committee and volunteers for their support during 2017.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.


Mark Dando
