ABDA Committee Elected for 2021/2022


On September 27 ABDA held its Annual General Meeting and elected a new committee to lead the organization through the next year when, amongst other things, we will celebrate our 70th birthday!

The meeting began by thanking and paying tribute to the 2020/2021 Committee who had worked tirelessly during yet another challenging COVID-affected year. We said a fond farewell to:

Hannah Janzen (President)
Nina Heryanto (Vice President)
Pooja Desai (Secretary)
Philip Campbell (Treasurer)
Nada Backovic
Akiko Chan

Claire Orrell

And once these highly creative, hard-working folk had stepped down, we welcomed the 2021/2022 committee:

Mary Callahan (President)
Mietta Yans (Vice President)
Trisha Garner (Secretary)
Nada Backovic (Treasurer)
Megan Ellis
Jenny Grigg
Klarissa Pfisterer

This coming year is going to be a big year – everyone loves a birthday party! – and everyone on the ABDA committee looks forward to working with you as we build up to the celebrations.
