The CWA of NSW and the ACT held their conference in Albury for 2019. Delegates filled to capacity the lovely entertainment complex entrance from the main street through to the gardens.

Unexpectedly the Prime Minister joined us and gave a Presidential type address ending "see you on Saturday".

Then as he left the egg incident occurred! As your T.V's showed we had a very close crowded encounters but the egg was not harmed.

All those lovely guards and minders, etc making a sharp contrast with the CWA delegates. Calm was restored shortly after and back to business.

Resolutions on transport and telecommunications, drought relief, nursing shortages and training, rural roads - abandoned cars, milk industry, Appin Way and food safety standards.

Elections: President- Stephanie Stanhope from Bega, Ann Adams OAM- Branch State Hon. Secretary. Anne Kotz Kyogle Branch - Hon. Treasurer. Lyn Braico Hornsby and District Branch - International State Officer. Tanya Jolly Barellen Branch - Agricultural and Environmental Officer. Bronwyn Dunston Singleton Branch - State Social Issues Officer. Judy Houghton Cowra Evening Branch and Annie Kiefer Sydney City Brancy - State Vice Presidents.

Gala Dinner, Thai restaurants, junior cafe cum sports, library centre, members tried them all. But dispite threats of colds or worse the delegates all survived, collected their prizes and set out for home into a soft drizzle.

In our car was a fine silver cup for "Best cultural report" in another "1st Boiled Pudding" and "Fruit cake" in another Handiwork, etc. Conference closed.
