Congratulations Rod! RACT Annual General Meeting Members are advised that the 88th Annual General Meeting of The Royal Automobile Club of Tasmania Limited w ill be held at 5 pm on Wednesday 9 November 2011. The official Notice of Meeting, listing the Agenda items, venue and calling for nominations to elect four Directors, will be published in The Mercury, The Examiner and The Advocate on Wednesday 17 August 2011. An officer who has been with Tasmania Police for 40 years has been recognised in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Sergeant Rodney Carrick, who began as a junior constable with Tasmania Police in May 1971, has been awarded an Australian Police Medal. Sergeant Carrick has served with distinction in a variety of roles and in various locations in Tasmania. His career has included working in Prosecution, Criminal Investigation Branch, Internal Investigations, Traffic and the Coroner’s Office. He has also been the officer in charge of the Triabunna, Lindisfar ne and Orford Police Stations at different times during his career. Since 2004 Sergeant Carrick has been the officer in charge of Crash Investigation, where he work s with Constable Kelly Cordwell (with Rod, above) who w rites occasional columns for Journeys. Police Commissioner Dar ren Hine commended Sergeant Carrick for his skills and commitment. “During a police career spanning 40 years, Sergeant Carrick has made a valuable contribution to policing in Tasmania and is a wor thy recipient of the Australian Police Medal,” Mr Hine said. We join in adding our congratulations and thanks to Rod Carrick for a job well done. Major new service – RACT Health Insurance Since the R ACT was established in 1923 it has added greatly to the list of services it offers to Tasmanians, based on specific needs in this state. Now we have launched R ACT Health Insurance. RACT Health Insurance is the result of strong community feedback, particularly through RACT branches. Subsequent research by the club has made it clear that cost of living pressures are a real issue in our state, and there is a desire in the community for a competitive health insurance service customised to the needs of Tasmanians, and driven by a trusted Tasmanian organisation. R ACT Health Insurance means more competition and more choice in Tasmania. The health insurance field in this state is substantially dominated by big, national insurers, and there is some industr y rationalisation taking place, which made the case for R ACT Health Insurance all the more compelling. RACT Health Insurance comes out of an agreement between the R ACT and one of Australia’s fastest-growing health insurers, GMHBA – a joint enterprise of two like-minded, not-for-profit mutual organisations who work hard to put members first. As a mutual, the RACT’s charter is to operate sustainably and to retur n benefits to our membership. RACT Health Insurance represents this mutual obligation in action. RACT Health Insurance is available to RACT members. Features and benefits of RACT Health Insurance are available online at ract.com.au/healthinsurance. Alternatively call the RACT on 13 27 22, or drop in to one of our branches around Tasmania. “ We continue to listen to our members, and RACT Health Insurance will be followed by other major initiatives in the years ahead, based upon Tasmanian community needs,” said RACT Chief Executive Officer Harvey Lennon when launching the new ser vice recently in Launceston.
