ATEM Ghosts Soiree

The idea of The Ghosts was born during the momentous years of 1997-1999 in Jim McLauchlan’s presidency when he commissioned Maree Conway, the author of the first History of AITEA, to chair a reformist movement called “The AITEA 2000 Writers Group”. In mid-1998 it was suggested that AITEA ought to create an organisation where the previous members could go and retain a point of cohesion with the organisation, and where they could continue to be more or less useful.
Jim of course is our wonderful REO for NSW/ACT.

As people retire, they receive an invitation from convenor Peter Scardoni to join the group.
The ghosts have been great fundraisers for the ATEM Foundation through their yearly (in) famous dinners and lunches.

For a history of the ghosts go to our website.

This year’s dinner to be held on Tuesday evening the 19th September as part of the TEMC In Melbourne and is being hosted by Bob Speechley who hosted the very first Ghosts lunch which was held in Melbourne at the Long Table, Walters Wine and Food Store in 2000. The minutes of this year’s Soiree as usual will be consecrated in the time honoured fashion, red wine being the favourite endorsement method.

It will be held at University House at the Law School – University of Melbourne – a relatively new location with outstanding views and a short Tram ride from the conference.
Retired members and those who wish they were are welcome to attend.
