- THE MINUTES of the 45th Annual General Meeting held on Friday 25th May 2018 were presented to the meeting and then accepted as a true and correct record

- BUSINESS ARISING FROM THE 2018 MINUTES
The need for at least two standardised programmes of events for sanctioned meeting was discussed.  Hosting clubs tend to set the order of events in programme and whilst a few swimmers question the order of events, most swimmers are happy with the programme of the meet.  

We need to discourage swimmers from submitting NO TIME (NT)for a swim event and a motion was moved by Rodrigo Sigwalt and seconded by Marco Cecioni to put in times for NT swimmers from the average time of swimmers in the respective age group. Times stay in the database for two years before new times are added.

- MEMBERSHIP FEES FOR 2019/20 -Membership fees have increased to $70 per year with a $5 saving if paid online.  Effective from 1st July 2020
