ISCO AGM AT SPILLCON IN CAIRNS, QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA
ISCO’s Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 10th April at the Cairns Convention Centre, Queensland, Australia.
As both the Conference and the Exhibition close at 5 pm on this day, it will be convenient for members to proceed directly to the meeting.
Members and guests are invited to join David Usher and Mary Ann Dalgleish for cocktails from 5 pm onwards and the meeting is expected to start about 5.20 pm or as soon members and guests are assembled. The meeting should end quite early, about 7 pm, giving you plenty time to join friends at other evening events.
At time of writing, details of the meeting room allocated for the meeting are awaited but, as soon as received, an email with this information will be sent to members.
Our guest speaker will be Mr John Wardrop, the Member of ISCO Council representing Australia. During the past year he has been involved in establishing ASCA – The Australian Spill Control Association. During 2012, Australia also saw the formation of AA – The AusSpill Association, which has a focus on equipment and materials for spill response. You will have the opportunity to meet key members of both associations.
ISCO’s President, David Usher and Membership Director, Mary Ann Dalgleish will both be present. Unfortunately ISCO was unable to secure a booth in the Exhibition Area, but David and Mary Ann will be circulating and hoping to meet as many members as possible.

Papers will not be distributed at the AGM so, if you wish to refer to them during the meeting, you should print out copies. A Proxy Form is included for the convenience of members who are unable to attend.
It promises to be an interesting and enjoyable meeting and it is hoped that there will be good attendance of members.
