President Update – 28 February 2020

Dear Members,

As you may know, earlier today Don Rowe was convicted on charges arising out of misuse of his credit card during the period he was president of RSL NSW. The sentencing of Mr Rowe has been adjourned until Friday, 17 April 2020.

The court’s decision closes the chapter on this drawn out process and a difficult time for RSL NSW. However, as a league, we have already moved on from these events, with measures in place that protect against these mistakes ever being repeated.

Consultation continues on the draft strategic plan and our members are engaged in their communities, flying the flag of the RSL, and providing support and a voice for veterans. Even now, members are helping with the recovery effort following the devastating bushfires and preparations are ongoing for ANZAC Day commemorations across the state.

We are resolute in our commitment to veteran welfare, and the ongoing work to finalise the strategic plan will move RSL NSW forward with a focus on our mission of respecting, supporting and remembering our veterans and their families.

 

Yours,

 

Ray James

Acting State President
