AWRA conducted a very successful Annual General Meeting (AGM), by webinar, on 28 October 2013. I
think this is the first time a national sports association has conducted an AGM by webinar! Our previous
two board meetings were by webinar and it works well. Many thanks to Peter Downs (Director / Founder
The Inclusion Club -contact@iwebinar.com.au) for his support and assistance on this.
