Four OAMs Gather at Conference
At the NBCA conference in Sydney on June 20th to 22nd the opportunity was taken to photograph the gathered four who have been awarded an OAM (Medal in the Order of Australia) in recent years. Present were current NBCA President Robert Bedwell OAM; NBCA Executive Officer Allen Woodham OAM; NBCA Vice President David Peters OAM and NBCA recent Vice President Geoff Fry OAM. In comparing notes it was discovered that while each of these awardees have served the NBCA for long periods their respective award citations were quite varied in describing the award.
It must be quite a unique situation to have four people who have been given this unique citation serving within the one organization at any one time. Congratulations were extended to the four individuals by the gathered NBCA Councillors as they enjoyed an evening together after a day-long conference which continued the next day.
