Numerous activities were organised by IAKS Australia and New Zealand related to the 2023 National Sports & Physical Activity Convention (NSC23) which took place 26 – 28 July 2023 in Melbourne, Australia. IAKS ANZ involvment included site visits and bus tour, IAKS stand at the expo, Architect’s Forum and networking event, and culminated in IAKS ANZ's inaugural Annual General Meeting (AGM).
The meeting marked a significant milestone, resulting in the formation of a dynamic Board of Directors, composed of Yvette Audet (Chairperson), Michelle Nolland (Vice-Chairperson), Simon Cooper (Secretary), Robert Keogh (Treasurer), Tania Fountain (Marketing Coordinator), Richie Williams (Acting Events Coordinator), and Adrian Paino (Memberships Coordinator), with a vacant role still available for a Partnerships and Grants Coordinator.
The organisation's membership base has witnessed an impressive annual growth rate of approximately 30 % since 2019, a trend that is expected to persist in the coming months.
Congrats to an incredible succesful team and thanks for your time and dedication.
