2018 PAA Annual General Meeting
The PAA annual general meeting was held on the 16 November at the Adina Hotel, in Sydney. Online attendance via Zoom was introduced this year at members request and there were 9 online attendees and 14 in person.
The Agenda tabled the standard AGM reports (see links below) as well as addressing a change of several positions on the PAA committee.
President Jen Guest, Vice President Sharan Simmons, Treasurer Jeremy Hunt and Ordinary Officer Helen Stamatakos reached the end of their term and stood down. Ella Wong was reinstated following her first three year term. The nominations received for the open positions matched, or were fewer than, vacancies and so no elections were required.
The new PAA Committee comprises:
President: Sharan Simmons (previously Vice President)
Vice President: Chris Lavelle (previously Ordinary Officer)
Treasurer: Robyn Rix (new)
Secretary: Mary McArthur
Ella Wong (reinstated)
Felicia Darbyshire-Pirie (new)
Susan Cottrell (new)
The outgoing committee were thanked for their commitment and service to the PAA and the new committee were welcomed in. In recognition of her dedication and significant contribution to both the PAA and the Pilates industry, spanning nine years on the committee, Jen Guest received an award of PAA Life membership.
