After many years serving as the Secretary of our association Terry Cubley is retiring. Terry has been a forever contributor to Australian Gliding in many ways. He did a great job as Secretary and I’m sure you would all join me in thanking Terry for his contribution in that role.

It is now my pleasure to announce that James Nugent is taking on the role of Gliding Australia’s Secretary. Of course, the Board is not something new to James as he previously served on the Board as the Juniors’ Board Representative.

James, who resides in Victoria, is an Aeronautical Engineer. Many of you would know that at the World Gliding Championships at Narromine last year, he beat the best glider pilots in the world from 21 nations to win the first World Gliding Championship title for Australia since 1991. With a performance like that, just imagine what he can achieve as Secretary.

The Board is delighted to have James on board, and we wish him well in his new challenge.

Steve Pegler
Chair of the Board
