He's baaaaack !!!

At the 2018 Annual General Meeting of the group, Gregg Faulkner was elected unopposed to return to the position of President. Gregg previously served 3 years as Group President until he stood down in 2016.

Gregg has returned to the leadership position with a commitment to greater involvement of "rank and file" members in Group planning and decision making.

2018/19 will be a very exciting year for the Group, beginning with the appointment of our region's Specialist Neurological Nurse-educator. The new appointee is expected to be announced very soon and will commence duties in early October.

In mid-October, Gregg and wife Sue (also Assistant Secretary) will travel to Sydney to participate in the 2018 Parkinson's NSW Group Leaders' Conference. Here they will have the opportunity to share experiences and news with Executive members of many other Support Groups.

In June 2019, Gregg and Sue will travel to Japan to attend the International Parkinson's Symposium in Kyoto. We hope to fund our Specialist Nurse to attend also, as a professional development bonus financed by our "Nurse Fund" donations.

So, all in all, 2018/19 will be a very busy and exciting year for our Support Group.
