The group wish to thank the returning Officer Sandy Freudenstein for her continued support for the Young Society of Artists.

Sandy in her remarks during the Young Society of Artists Inc Annual General Meeting commented on the fact that the group formed in 1982 and it was worth noting that some of the current members have been associated with the group in some way for the past 38 years.

The president's report also during the Annual General Meeting included accolade's to the members of the Young Society of Artists who work for the success of the organized art activities throughout the year.

In particular during the report it was noted the support from Hilltops Art's Management Committee and Cinema Manager for their ongoing support and in providing a base for the Young Society of Artists within the Southern Cross Arts and Cinema complex.
