Update from the President – 2020 AGM and other info

We have been really busy in the background of the organisation.

For your information;

Please let us know if there’s anything you would like discussed for the agenda – email: Anyone can nominate for President, Vice President, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, Secretary and Executive members (brain trust).

Training and Assessment – At Whitewater Wall on 17-18 October. Please let us know if you (or someone else) would like to be included. We need to know ASAP to allow for organisation.

Membership – Matt Jones has been really busy processing the many renewals that have come in this year.

Website – We are in the middle of updating and adding membership details for new and renewing members. Thanks for your patience.

Certificates – Matt and I have dug through the archives and found an original certificate. This has been updated and I will soon send out a certificate to each current instructor or guide.

Training manuals – I have written updated BAI, TRA, and SPG manuals. I will soon do the ICG and MPG manuals. The manuals will be checked by peers and then issued to people as they sign up for training/assessment. If anyone has any photos or sketches they think would go well in a manual then please send through.

Treasurer – Richard has been busy keeping the TCIA compliant with insurance and small business practice.

Blackmans Bay Blowhole – Kingborough Council will soon complete the installation of new fencing. They are also installing a labelled belay bar. Thanks to council for this. Please remember to make your own risk assessment before using any venue.
