Future NACAAs

Following the 2020 NACAA virtual AGM, the most important decision the newly elected NACAA Inc Committee needed to address was what to do following the cancellation of NACAA XXIX.

There was some rumoured support for there being a NACAA held in 2021 at Parkes, but the members felt that having already organised an event in 2020 and having to organise another in 2022, adding 2021 would mean three straight years of event organisation!

The decision was made to hold NACAA XXX as planned in 2022. The committee had already received submissions for 2022, and after due consideration, I am pleased to announce that NACAA XXX will be held in Melbourne to be hosted by the ASV. 2022 is also their 100th anniversary, and so this is sure to be a NACAA to remember.

But what of Parkes, I hear you say? The co-convenors from CWAS were happy to see ASV take on the next event. However they are considering bidding to host NACAA XXXI in 2024 in Parkes, so those like me who were looking forward to the visit will still get the opportunity. I hope to see you all again in Melbourne in 2022.

Until then, stay safe and clear skies

David O’Driscoll,
NACAA General Secretary
