The 2019 EOPAA Seminar/AGM was held at SCU Gold Coast on November 6th, 2019. The day included a comprehensive presentation from Dr. Sirimal Premakumara from the University of Colombo, Sri Lanka regarding the Sri Lankan essential oil industry and a lecture from Ashley Dowell, SCU regarding the Australian Essential Oil Industry: History and emerging trends which he previously presented at IFEAT 2019.  This was followed by a lively discussion group to develop selection criteria for species to be included in the EOPAA Australian Native oils project and the formal AGM. The AGM addressed proposed changes to the EOAA constitution, nominations for a new EOPAA committee and the EOPAA/Agrifutures project. Unfortunately, it was realised that we did not have enough full members to make a quorum and as such, we were unable to make any formal decisions at this AGM. The EOPAA committee has met subsequently and has proposed to have another general meeting in late January early February 2020 to allow for formal decisions to be made.  Members will be advised of this date in December 2019.  The meeting will be held with electronic media and proxy voting options to ensure we get a quorum.
