The State and Territory Presidents and Directors of the CBCA National Board met for the AGM in Melbourne.
The AGM presents an important opportunity for Branch Presidents and Directors to share ideas and make decisions that guide the development of the Children’s Book Council of Australia.
Professor Margot Hillel OAM was confirmed as the National Board Chair and Julia Davenport welcomed as the new Deputy Chair.
Margaret Hamilton AM, who resigned from the National Board at the AGM, was also celebrating her 56 years of service to the CBCA. Margaret has experience as a librarian, editor, reviewer, bookseller and publisher. She shared some fabulous stories at the dinner prior to the AGM.
