From the President - October 2016

I am writing to advise you that at the Institute’s Annual General Meeting held on 26 September 2016, the special resolutions aimed at modernising our constitution and incorporating changes flowing from formation of our new national body were endorsed. As a result, the Institute’s full name is now the "Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies, New South Wales, Incorporated", and in its shortened form, "The Institute for Defence and Security Studies NSW".

In addition, at the Annual General Meeting, I was endorsed to replace David Leece as President of the Institute. Regrettably, David has not been well for some time, had a major operation on 11 October 2016 and is now home recuperating. David has been tireless over several decades in the work that he has performed for the Institute and we hope that he will be back in the ‘saddle’ shortly.

There are some very interesting, informative and high quality speakers to round out our lunchtime lectures for 2016. We would like to maximise attendance at these lectures. You will not be disappointed.

Also, we will be holding our Christmas lunch on 6 December at the Victoria Barracks Officers Mess. Pre-registration is essential so contact Theo Fox on (02) 9393 2325 (Mondays & Tuesdays) or by email: office@rusinsw.org.au
