Farewell to a Mighty Advocate
February 27, 2015
Anne Bottomley is hanging up her microphone and retiring after spending many, many years advocating to anyone who would listen the benefits of tour guiding. She has been instrumental in laying down the building blocks of Australian tour guiding and being a mentor to many tour guides and of course working tirelessly on many committees. After so many years of being our champion she wants a quieter existence and reluctantly we have to let her go. We extend an invitation to all members to attend her farewell afternoon tea on Thursday 12 March, 2015.
