Chair - John Maddock
 

The Chair welcomed everyone to the meeting and acknowledged that the meeting was being held on the lands of the traditional custodians, the Wurundjeri-Woiwurrung People of the Kulin Nation, and paid respect to their elders, past, present and emerging. Given that the next day is the 26th of January, John pointed out that while this date is celebrated by many as Australia Day it is also recognised as a day of sorrow and mourning by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders given the tragic consequences of the colonisation of their lands for their people over the last 225 years.

John then handed the microphone on to Julian who welcomed all of those in the room (14) and on the zoom screen (8) to the meeting, and wished everyone a Happy Lunar New Year (Year of the Roabbit).

Further points to note:

Guest Speaker  on Wednesday 25th January was our own, Professor Geoff Rose. Geoff is a professor (retired) with the Monash Institute of Transport Studies located within the Department of Civil Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. Geoff ‘s research and teaching activities cover sustainable transport, travel behaviour, advanced technology, and transport policy.

Guest Speaker – Dr Tiffani Howell, Senior Research Fellow in the School of Psychology and Public Health at La Trobe University.

Tiffini recently completed a four year study funded by the Commonwealth Department of Veterans’ Affairs, to understand the effectiveness of assistance dogs as an adjunct to treatment for veterans with PTSD.

Tiffani began by clarifying the definition of an assistance animal (usually a dog...there is one assistance cat on the books in Queensland!)
