On Tuesday 13th August 41 members attended the AGM of the Melbourne Chapter. A new committee was elected with six members returning and six new members joining the committee. As is the custom for this meeting there was no guest speaker and the Heads of Schools who were present, Ikenobo, Shogetsudo koryu, Ohara and Sogetsu, gave a demonstration.
On this occasion the demonstrators created their ikebana concurrently and then each Head of School spoke about the ikebana they had created.
