Friendship, understanding and good fellowship between the people of Australia and Asia

July 2020

Dear AAA Members,

Your Committee and I wish you all good health at this difficult time of the Covid19 Pandemic.

We had planned a busy Social Year for 2020, but instead, we have only been able to hold one public function, the very successful Thai Dinner, on the 16 March, 2020 organized by Judith Coghill and Maureen Duke.

The Committee has met every month as usual, but since April, our meetings have been via Zoom.

Our Secretary, Hong Seng Sim has been working hard, supported with Legal advice, to arrange for AAA to become a Not for Profit organization. This means that your donations to the Language Awards will become Tax deductible in the future.

Our new Webmaster is Committee Member, Sonja Sasse and we thank her for the enthusiasm she has shown in taking on this role. I would also like to thank Lok Li, who previously had responsibility for our website, over several years.

Our Annual General Meeting and Election of Committee Members for 2020-2021 will be held via Zoom on Monday, 31 August, 2020 at 7.00pm. The Agenda and Zoom contact will be sent out prior to the Meeting.

Welcome to our new AAA members.  It is pleasing, that at times like this, we still have people interested in joining AAA.


We look forward to seeing you all on screen on the 31 August, 2020 at the AGM.

Mary R. Kelleher
