Our guest speaker in July is Mr Kim Ellis, Director Australian Antarctic Division. He will speak about Australia’s national interests in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean; our presence, operations and strategy.
Our guest speaker for September is AVM (Ret'd) John Blackburn, AO, former Deputy Chief of Air Force and one of Australia’s pre-eminent consultants in Defence and National Security. He will speak of the importance of supply chain and give his assessment of Australia’s preparedness or otherwise. Rather than be surprised by current issues, we need to ensure the same mistakes don’t carry forward.
