The AEC (Sydney) contacted the branch late last week and they are going to commence very soon

We need to have all correct email and postal addresses and the preferred email address to us no later than COB 29th March, so we can collate this by COB 31st March so we can send it to the AEC by the 1st April 2021. Please email  by Monday 4pm 29th March 2021
