A new Management Committee for the Australian Cruise Association (ACA) was voted in on September 14 at the AGM held in Broome.

Two positions were replaced, with Julie O’Brien stepping down at the end her term to focus on an increasingly important and growing role in the cruise sector at Tourism Events Queensland. Scott Lovett takes over the position on the committee vacated by Tony Clementson. In her opening speech at the Conference, Jill Abel commented on Tony’s recent passing as being a very sad time for the Association.  She acknowledged his time as a Board Member since 2016 and told attendees he had represented Tourism NT’s membership with great enthusiasm and wisdom saying his contribution to the meetings was always considered and productive.

The 22nd annual ACA Conference and AGM was held in Broome, WA from September 12 – 14 and attracted 120 attendees. The next AGM will be held in Geelong, Victoria in 2019.
