Threatened Plants Tasmania Inc.

Notice of AGM

Saturday, 9 September, 10am

Dear Tasmanian Field Naturalists,

You are invited to the Threatened Plants Tasmania Annual General Meeting, to be held in The Pod at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Hobart on Saturday September 9, 2023, starting at 10.00am. The official notice and agenda, including details of our guest speaker, can be downloaded here:

Any interested member of the public is welcome to attend, however only paid-up members of TPT can vote at the meeting.

I encourage all members to attend the AGM as the Members are what makes TPT such a unique group and without member participation, there will be no group. The committee is asking all members to give consideration to joining the committee as TPT needs a Secretary for the coming year and I will be stepping down as President at the 2024 AGM so it would be ideal for somebody to join the committee as Vice President and have 12 months to assist me and learn the role.

A nomination Form for all of the Committee roles can be downloaded here:

If you have any questions about a role please reply to this email and I will be happy to answer your questions.

TPT is also in need of Field Trip Leaders as we currently only have a few experienced leaders. The role of Field Trip Leader is not hard or difficult but is very rewarding as you get to be more involved with the plant species and the Technical Lead for your Field Trip. A Training Day has been arranged for Sunday 17 September on private property outside Hobart and registration for this trip will be posted onto the website soon.

If you have any questions about becoming a Field Trip Leader please reply to this email and I will be happy to answer your questions.

We are currently working on Online Training that will enable members to boost their Field Trip Skills in areas of using a GPS or the Handy GPS app to record waypoints, then download and convert the data to a form that can be submitted to the Natural Values Atlas (NVA).

These will be available to members on the TPT website before the Spring Field Trip Season starts.

Looking forward to meeting you at the AGM


Geoff Curry, TPT President

TPT President
