AFAS Victoria Inc – Annual General Meeting and Reception
The Annual General Meeting of AFAS Victoria Inc, in conjunction with a Reception for Members, was held this year at Innovation @ 257, Level 1, Emirates House, 257 Collins Street, Melbourne. This venue was kindly made available to us by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Regional Development.
The Reception provided some 25 members and their partners with a convivial atmosphere for making contact with others who share their interests and/or simply of mixing socially, while the Annual General Meeting provided members with the opportunity of having a say in the running of AFAS Victoria for the coming year. At the Annual General Meeting, Georgina Douglas, Yvonne Durandet and Kerry Hourigan were re-elected as Committee Members.
Welcome drinks and fingerfood were served from 7:00pm, ahead of the Annual General Meeting, followed by the Reception with food and refreshments. At the Reception we were pleased to have the company of the Scientific Counsellor from the French Embassy, Professor Michel Thibier, accompanied by his wife Katherine. We were also joined for a short time by the Melbourne-based Cultural and Scientific Attaché, Dominique de Gasquet.
