For more information about AusRAP and its system of mapping road safety based on risk rating and safe infrastructure, read more at www.ausrap.org Thank you Chris Recently the RACT farewelled long-serving Executive Assistant Christine Woodward, who retired in February. Chris has given skilled and faithful service to three CEOs during her 30-year career with us. She has been the capable and unflappable organiser of all our 50-year membership functions, the AAA conferences held in Tasmania, Board elections and the RACT’s annual general meetings. She has also held the important role of secretary to the RACT Board. We w ill miss Christine’s cheerful personality, wise counsel and unequalled knowledge of the club and its heritage. We wish her a long, happy and well-earned retirement. RACT Travelworld assists our Air Australia passengers R ACT Travelworld had about 50 passengers booked to travel on Air Australia at the time it went into administration on 17 Februar y, including two passengers in Phuket at the time. With the financial collapse of the airline excluded from travel insurance policies and not covered by the Travel Compensation Fund, most passengers faced losing the amount paid for their Air Australia tickets. R ACT Travelworld has undertaken to minimise the impact on its clients by re-booking them on other carriers up to the value of their Air Australia tickets. Your RACT is involved in a range of community support and sponsorship programs – like these three recent initiatives. We’re major sponsors of the Tasmanian Sy mphony Orchestra’s successful Symphony Under the Stars program – our General Manager Communications and Marketing even took up the baton to conduct the TSO’s performance of the William Tell Overture at the L aunceston concert. On the Clarence Boardwalk, we sponsored the Australia Day breakfast and assisted the local Lions Club on the day; and at North Hobart Oval, we were involved with the North Melbourne Football Club’s clinic for children. Snapshots from our community projects C onfederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) President Andrew Papadopoulos, addressed R ACT’s Joint Regional Advisor y Committee forum in Hobart recently. Mr Papadopoulos presented the CAMS Ignition Program, a driver safety and awareness program aimed at youth. For more details, visit w ww.youtube.com and search CAMS Ignition program.
