Thank you to all those section members who voted in the recent SMPTE Australia Section elections.

Firstly, a big thank you to Peter Stavrianos (Stav) and Kathy-Anne McManus (KAM) for their contribution to the SMPTE Australia Section board. It’s not an easy task balancing work, home and lifestyle to include the time to contribute to the running and planning of the various activities that the Australian section of SMPTE provides for its members. Round of applause for Stav and KAM.

Secondly, the SMPTE Australia Section welcomes Catherine Turner and Andrew Seale on to the Board as section managers.
