Formation of a Club

Record of discussion at a meeting held in Head Office of the Bureau Thursday 20 May 1976

In response to a letter from the Director, 13 May 1976, and suggestions from Bureau officers, active and retired, approximately fifty people attended a meeting in the Bureau Head Office Conference Room on Thursday 20 May 1976 to consider the formation of a Club for retired, separated and long serving officers of the Bureau.

Mr Bath apologised for the absence of the Director and Mr Muffatti who were away on business in Canberra and after giving some background on the reasons for the proposal to form a club, he asked Mr Lillywhite to take the chair.

The following decisions were taken at the meeting.
