Goulburn Congregation has begun its preparation for Chapter to be held in Canberra later in the year.


 


The Chapter of Affairs will be held on October 26, 27 and 28 and the Chapter of Election will be held on November 26, 27 and 28.


 


For our Preparation Assembly held on May 12 and 13, we were able to use technology based at Fraynework Multimedia. This allowed us to “˜conference’ between our gathering venues at Young and Albury, and to connect with Sisters Colleen Livermore in Blackwater, Queensland; Gwen Garland in Papua New Guinea; and Theresa Foley in Tzaneen, South Africa.


 


This was our first attempt at this computer link and we were pleased with the result, and glad to learn a few things about the technology which we are very hopeful will respond to some technical “˜tweeking’ before our next meeting on July 21.


 


We have included here a photo of our Chapter Logo, Step by Step, which has been prepared as a banner by Frances Fitzpatrick. Thank you, Frances.
