Several of us from D9700 attended the 2018 Australia New Zealand Conference held in Hobart. Also as part of the events was the Governor Elect Training Seminar (GETS) attended by DGE John McKenzie and Fayah McKenzie.
Also representing D9700 were DG John and Susan Glassford, PDG George and Carol Weston, PDG John and Maria Egan, PDG Irene and Terry Jones, PP Deidre and PP Phillip Tome, PP Clare Lawlor.
There was so much to see and do and above all learn. The Governor Train or G’ Train as it is known get down a few days earlier for the GETS training. The DGs and partners get together in their class years and on a separate night the D9700 delegates have dinner. Next year the Australian New Zealand Conference is in Christchurch and everyone is welcome.
