ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2020
It is planned to hold the 2020 AGM of the AMHA via Zoom later this year. Members will be advised of the meeting time and date closer to the date – so stay posted.. Papers for the meeting will be sent out by the Secretary well before the meeting, together with an invitation and instructions on how to join the meeting.
25 YEAR HISTORY PROJECT
The AMHA is preparing a history of the Association to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the foundation of the AMHA in 1995. The plan is to make this a group effort with members contributing what they know to a template of the history. Nick Williams, our current Vice President, is in charge of the compilation. Please support Nick and the AMHA in helping to prepare what should be a very interesting story of our birth and evolution over 25 years.
Membership renewal for 2020 is now overdue, but still open. Membership fees can be paid through Register Now or by mail/email using the Membership Form. These facilities are available on the Membership Page.
MINING HISTORY RESEARCH RESOURCES
A compilation of online resources to assist Members in their mining history research has recently been added to the website on the For Members tab (under Membership).
CORONA CRISIS IMPACT ON AMHA
Unprecedented times indeed! Given the current uncertainty and health risk to members’ and the general community from the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 AMHA Annual Conference has been cancelled. The decision was taken by the Executive of the AMHA in consultation with the Advisory Committee and the Organising Committee of the Bathurst conference. The 26th Annual conference will now be held in 2021.
Best wishes to all our members, friends and colleagues for the coming months. Follow the medical advice and stay safe.
