I acknowledge all of our Life Members and record our condolences at the passing of Mr Ross Mortimer, Mr Walter Braitling and Mr Mick Maloney. With each passing year I realise the value of the NTCA to our members and admire more the foresight and perseverance of those industry leaders that forged our Association 33 years ago. I recall the early NTCA gatherings in Katherine in the 1980s, where the dinners fitted into Kirbys Restaurant and the entertainment involved Terry underwood turning hardcase cattlemen into thespians, performing in womens clothes and the like. We are now of an age where I am filling a gap while the second generation are taking their place in the lead of the NTCA. Our industry has always been up front in offering equal work opportunities for women, and many of our family and corporate stations are run by true partnerships. My wife says its too equal when it comes to work. I thank her for all the extra burden she takes on as part of me doing this job, and acknowledge the input of all the other spouses and partners of executive and committee members that enable the NTCA to prosper. Id also like to acknowledge my neighbours Positioning for Prosperity An egalitarian Territorian welcome to everyone equally. It is again my honour and privilege to deliver the Presidents Address.
