Sponsorship Support

The MGAQ Inc. is very grateful to the anonymous private sponsor who has again renewed their donation as a major sponsor of the work undertaken by the MGAQ. This continued support is both rewarding and encouraging for those involved with the Association. Seeking such sponsorship remains a priority for the Association as government funding is interim only.

A Very Successful Mid-Year Function

The mid-year function on Sunday, 12 June was a great success enjoyed by all who were able to attend. This function was timed to also celebrate the 25th anniversary of the MGAQ and to acknowledge that June is MG Awareness Month. We welcomed our Regional Coordinators as well, and thanked them for taking the time to come to Brisbane for a meeting amongst themselves to talk over ideas and thoughts for going forward.

Mid Year Function 12 June

Our mid-year function on Sunday 12 June. Unfortunately, because of privacy concerns of some of the material to be presented, we are not able to produce a DVD of Dr Pane’s presentation. So, if you wish to find out about ‘MG and Eye Conditions’ you will need to come along to what will surely be an enlightening address. Also, please remember that Membership Subscriptions Renewals are now due.
