SEBA News - June 2019

From the President's Desk

SEBA welcomes the New Year with opportunity and progress. Your directors wish you a successful year ahead and look forward to seeing you at our future events.

You will have received our invitation for the first luncheon speaking engagement this year. We are fortunate to have Trevor Rowe join us on Wednesday 11 April at the Marigold Restaurant for lunch and a presentation on Australia’s financial future, our place in the global environment and what’s ahead. Trevor is a renowned speaker, so I encourage you to attend and bring business associates, family and friends along. Please book early via the flyer provided.

I am delighted to confirm that the fund-raising event in June last year for the Sydney University Nerve Research Foundation provided SEBA with the funds to donate $46,000, an event we all should be truly proud of. Thank you for your support. In June this year we are looking to support another charity which is involved in the bone marrow transplant field; the organisation is the Arrow Bone Marrow Transplant Foundation at St Vincent’s Hospital. For this to be a success we rely on the generosity of members and businesses to donate prizes for the auction and raffle. Sponsorship is always appreciated by taking tables and assisting with wine and other goodies. I look forward again to your help. Please let me know if you could volunteer to help on the committee or on the night during the event. Your assistance will contribute to another successful evening.

SEBA needs to build and grow our membership base. Please encourage family, friends and business associates to join our group. There are no joining or ongoing fees for our members. We now only ask $100 to join for corporate membership which provides for a number of benefits. Speak to Bede Long our current acting membership chair.
