2020 ALPA AGM Notice
The 2020 ALPA AGM meeting will be conducted virtually this year in line with recent changes to the Corporations Act 2001 which enables companies and boards to meet their legal obligations and convene annual general meetings online. Despite our best intentions to conduct a face-to-face event to catch up with members and showcase our valued sponsors, COVID-19 restrictions and protocols have curtailed our ability to do this in 2020.

To attend the virtual meeting or lodge your apology, registration is required. Login details for the virtual meeting will be provided to all attendees closer to the date.

The charity ALPA will support in 2020 will be Aarons Wish and the Brain Cancer Foundation. Aaron’s Wish was established by the Iori family in 2013, in memory of their son Aaron, who lost his brave battle with Brain Cancer earlier that year, and in the memory of many others who have been touched by Brain Cancer.
It was Aaron’s wish that awareness be raised of the devastation of a Brain Cancer diagnosis and that critical Brain Cancer research is desperately underfunded.
Brain Cancer is the leading cause of Cancer deaths in children under 10 and young people under 39. Each year 1600 patients are diagnosed and 1200 will die
All funds raised are donated to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation research in the hope of finding better treatments and one day a cure.
Together we can make a difference!
