Dnister held its 60th Annual General Meeting on Sunday 3rd November 2019 at the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Hall in Essendon.  The well-attended meeting was a significant milestone as it celebrated 60 years of our Co-operative.

The results of the main items of business were as follows:

The reports of the Board of Directors, the Financial Statements and the Auditor’s Report for the financial period ended 30 June 2019 were tabled and received.

The resolution for the total Director Remuneration pool to remain at $52k pa, including superannuation, was approved.

The Election of Directors was declared and confirmed.

We congratulate all three candidates on their election and look forward to working with them.
