The Royal Society of Queensland Annual Report 2019–2020

Edwards, G. P., and Hansen, J. (2020)


This report covers the period from 16 November 2019 to 15 November 2020. The nearly 12 months have experienced extraordinary circumstances which we could not have foreseen at the time of the Annual General Meeting in November 2019. However, in 2020 some major achievements were accomplished and milestones reached. Instead of organising events, the office-bearers of the Society have focused their attention on publication of the annual peer-reviewed Proceedings, two Special Issues and the Rangelands Policy Dialogue. This has been an impediment to hosting activities that might appeal to the complete range of interests of members. Just as Council reported last year, the Society remains in excellent intellectual health but precarious financial health.
