I have recorded these Board notes prior to the WIA Board teleconference scheduled to take place  last Tuesday as I was overseas, but unless volcanoes have exploded I am back now.

I put myself up for election on the basis of a need for change at the WIA and you elected me.  

I admit that it has been a steep learning curve as a Director, but what has emerged from the WIA is not good.

The WIA has had no budget since 2014, currently we have no treasurer and our financial reporting is in disarray.  

On my estimation our Institute is losing over 1000 dollars a week.

The Board is self centred and not prepared to examine itself both under our constitution and more importantly the Corporations Act of Australia.

I have pointed out to the Board that their approach is inappropriate and suggested measures to be put in place to rectify the situation.  

Both you and I will have to see what is the outcome.

I remain a Director of the WIA, this is Andrew VK6AS
