BARRY House was elected the new Chairperson of Busselton Jetty Inc (BJI) at the organisation’s AGM last week to which over 170 people attended, presenting two new Life Members Doreen Bailie and Charmian Terry.
Mrs Terry and Mrs Bailie were granted the prestigious honour of a Life Membership after 13 and 8 years respective volunteer commitment.
Mrs Terry served the Busselton Jetty since September 2006 as Treasurer and Secretary on the Executive from 2007 to 2018.
Mrs Bailie first became a member in 2011 and was a Board Member from 2014 – 2018, also being the inaugural member of the Working Group that set up and co-ordinated the hugely successful Volunteer Jetty Host program.
Mr House was elected Chair after Jenny Sheehan stepped down following 13 years commitment and will continue her Board Member role. Sally Wilkinson was re-elected Deputy Chair, Dr Natasha Ayers Secretary and Jessica O’Malley Treasurer with Steve Disley, Ken Preston and Chris Lane making up the board of 8.
MR House said Charmian Terry and Doreen Bailie were worthy additions to the Life Membership and very well deserving candidates.
“As custodians of the Jetty, Busselton Jetty Inc appreciates everything Doreen and Charmian have done and continue to do.”
The organisation presented its Annual Report to the Membership and public in attendance which is now available at www.busseltonjetty.com.au
SMC Marine also presented an update on the Village project at the end of the Jetty.
