10th May 2016. WIA Reform Group – News Letter Number 5

Good afternoon,

Last week was busy and we decided to hold off on our update to you.  In the lead-up to the AGM we’ve been working hard to get a balanced set of facts on the table.

We are still waiting on a response to our request for the Board to introduce a Directors Register of Interests.  To date no correspondence has been received.

An analysis of the WIA Submission to the ACMA was completed and distributed last week.  Thanks for your positive feedback on this document.  If you’ve not read our report yet, follow this link:



We have also looked at the question raised by WIA President, Phil Wait when he asked “What have the Romans done for us?”   Only we looked at it from the members’ perspective with the facts to hand.  If you haven’t read it yet follow this link.



As a member you should be concerned about the lack of visible progress by your WIA.

On the 7th May we launched a survey to investigate what you think about the licence structure here in Australia.  We’ve been overwhelmed with responses.  Over 300 of you have responded so far; a fantastic result.  If you have not yet completed the survey please do so; and forward the link to your club and friends.  Your thoughts count.


If you are a WIA member, do you wonder where your $95 goes each year?  Do you feel you’re getting value for money?  We’ve done the sums and will release a short summary in the next couple of days.

Word about the WIA Reform Group is spreading.  We are very pleased with the feedback and support we’ve been receiving.  Please continue to spread the word.  Forward this email to your local club and friends.  Contact the National Office and Board Members calling for positive action.

Stay up-to-date with news and progress; – visit  www.wiarg.org .

We’ll continue to challenge this Board and demand better results.  Please continue to email us with your feedback and ideas.


Until next week,


G.C. Dunstan VK4DU,  C. Chapman VK3QB,  R. Dollar VK8RD
