ANNOUNCEMENT Committee Appointment

The Committee of Sydney Atheists regretfully would like to announce the departure of David Killingly from the Committee. David has been an outstanding member of Sydney Atheists who has contributed generously to our group both in time and scholarship. For personal reasons he will not be able to continue on the committee.

It gives us great pleasure, however, to announce the appointment in his place of Nick Sewell. Those who come along to our various Meetup events will know Nick. He adds a youthful pragmatic enthusiasm that will complement the Committee and give it tremendous balance. We welcome Nick to the committee and congratulate him on his appointment.
