ATTENTION COMPETITORS AT BRISBANE MEETS
We have a new team running Meet Manager this season and they have requested that you register for your events as early as possible, and DEFINITELY at least 30 minutes before the scheduled start time for your first event. This will allow them time to input entries, print start lists, etc. and try to keep the program running on time.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
The current QMA Registrar will need to relinquish the role early in 2019 due to work and study commitments. So we are looking for someone keen to take on this role - if you have a few hours a week free to do this important job you will be doing a great service for QMA. Also it is not necessary for the Registrar to be a member of QMA - maybe a friend or relative has some free time?
The Position Description for this role is available here: Registrar PD - basically if you are used to navigating computers and the internet you will be ideal for this role. Enquiries or expressions of interest can be sent to the current Registrar.
Membership renewal for South Queensland members for 2018 -19 was due on 1st October.

Members are also reminded of the importance of being financial and registered members of QMA for insurance purposes.
If you have any queries, please contact the QMA Registrar.
