At the APT International Board meeting in Denver, a proposal from the APT Australia Chapter to adopt a new name and extend our regional coverage was approved by the Board.
Henceforth, we are the APT Australasia Chapter, and our region encompasses Australia, New Zealand and East Asia (currently loosely defined as the region between Pakistan in the west, and the International Date Line in the east!!).
Our intent is that the APT Australasia Chapter will act as an incubation space for future members and APT chapters in Asia.
We are investigating the process to rename this website, and will let you know in due course.
We are also pleased to announce that Ian Bowman has agreed to become a Co-convenor of the APT Australasia Chapter. Current leadership is therefore:
Convenor: Donald Ellsmore (Melbourne, Australia)
Co-convenor: David West (Sydney, Australia)
Co-convenor: Bill Jordan (Newcastle, Australia)
Co-convenor: Ian Bowman (Wellington, NZ)
