Management Committee

CLAIRE EGLINTON
Chairman, Newsletter, Webmaster.
Joined committee mid-term 2006. Enjoys writing our quarterly newsletter and taught herself enough to design this website though 'webmaster' is a very tongue-in-cheek title. Delegate to U3A South Australia (the State network) and U3A Online, State secretary and State delegate to U3A Alliance Australia (the national network) and national editor. Mastered computing through teaching but continues to show remarkable lack of talent in French.

MILLIE NICHOLLS
Vice Chair. Appointed to fill a mid-term vacancy in 2013, Millie shows up each Spring as our Botany tutor, concentrating on local native plant identification. Her long-time dedication to Penguins, an organisation devoted to teaching women about public speaking and meeting procedure, makes her an ideal choice for this position.

BETH SMITH

Elected at 2010 AGM. Long-term Clare resident, Beth is also a familiar face in Burra due to her previous position at the Burra School. Member of French group. Compulsively cheerful and energetic. Since joining has proved herself to be an organiser extraordinaire. Took on this position at 2011 AGM.

JUSTIN BRADY
Assistant Secretary, Publicity Officer. 
 Joined committee in May 08 as committee person but has adopted other roles. Justin has proved invaluable at getting publicity for us in the Argus and makes the rest of us look slack by being incredibly prompt issuing minutes but only officially took on position of Ass. Sec. at 2015 AGM. From a background in media and the wine industry, Justin is now a Mintaro media baron and wine taster. Member of History group and Petanque.
