The Branch Council welcomed the new NSW Board of Directors and two Life Councillors at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday, July 18 2015 held at Baden-Powell Scout Centre.

A marching flag parade performed by Rover Scouts and the Hume Region Pipes and Drums band opened the meeting, before the business of the meeting got underway.
