At the PADC’s 39th AGM the outgoing President Mark Braddock summed it up nicely when on Monday night he said; “It has been an honour to serve the Club and to promote Western Australian creativity to the world and if there is one thing that I hope the club continues is taking WA to the world and unapologetically celebrating how great what we create here in Perth is.”
Braddock stated his reign at the helm of the club was a partnership with outgoing Vice President James Hawkes. Braddock spoke on behalf of them both when he said they were both proud of what they had achieved.
It is without a doubt that PADC members are grateful for their tireless work and purposeful leadership. Braddock asked the incoming committee to have ambition but be realistic about the resources you have available and to do a few things well but not to reinvent the wheel unless it is absolutely necessary.
Braddock concluded his final AGM speech with the request for the club’s incoming leadership to “think global and act local“.
