The Pump Industry Australia AGM was held on 12 November in Melbourne. The event, which was followed by the annual dinner, included the annual election of PIA office bearers.
The AGM saw the incumbent President Ron Astall returned for a another term. Vice-President John Inkster was also returned to the same role. Most of the council remained the same though retiring member John Link was succeeded by Frankie Camilleri of John Crane.
President Ron Astall commented on how fortunate he was to be supported by such a strong team and noted the efforts of the many volunteers who had ensured such a successful year for the PIA, including Alan Rowan for all his work on the technical handbooks, Ken Kugler for his work on standards and Keith Sanders for his work on marketing and events.
The meeting was informed that the PIA remained in a strong financial position and had also been able to reinvest some of its funds back into the growth of the industry through various events.
