There is a lot going on at NSW Bridge Association (NSWBA) and you might ask yourself, “What does this all mean? And how is this going to affect me?”
The NSW Bridge Association (NSWBA) is going through a restructure that will result in the separation of its two functions, that of being the state body for bridge in NSW and a large Sydney based Bridge Club.
These changes, and the tasks needed to create two independent bridge bodies, have given rise to a number of questions. Follow the link below for answers to some of the most frequently asked ones (FAQs).
Notice is hereby given to all voting members of the New South Wales Bridge Association Limited (the "Company") of an Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on Monday 6th November at 6:00pm at Level 1, 162 Goulburn Street, East Sydney and remotely by ZOOM.
