ST PATRICKS DAY LUNCHEON MEETING 17TH MARCH 2011

A CENTURY AT LAST

 

101 ANZROC Members and partners attended a most enjoyable St Patrick’s Day Luncheon at the Maroondah Club on 17 March. This event is fast becoming a tradition and members and partners relished the opportunity to catch up with workmates and their partners from years gone by

The combination of members and partners created a great party atmosphere and the green serviettes and green attire worn by many in attendance, added to the Irish theme. The Club generously donated bottles of wine to the members to supplement the ROC wine contribution of $200

President Neville Pearson in green Guinness Irish hat warmly welcomed everyone and advised that apologies had been received from:

Graeme Ainscough, , John and Pat Bloom ,Geoff Burton, Geoff Christensen, Col and Ethel Edwards, Lawrie Foord, Norris Gale(in Cambodia),, Ray Gill, Frank and Joan Hatfield ,Keith Higgs, Bruce and Audrey Kells, Geoff Meggs, Joan Nathan, Leigh and Pat O’Neill, Don Taylor, Paul Tovey, Eamon Veaney, Bill Walker, Julie Wilkins,

Neville thanked Lyn and Les Stevens for the work they put into organizing the event with the Maroondah club and for our Social Subcommittee member David Knuckey and wife Glen for their help and support.  Special mention was also made of the support the Maroondah Club management and staff had given and for the catering staff in particular, who were so obliging and professional in ensuring the occasion was such a success

With the formal part of the luncheon over, our resident Leprechaun (Kevin Mitchell) entertained the assembly with a wide rendition of Irish stories (all true I am told) much to the merriment of all in attendance. When yours truly departed from the club, several of our members were endeavoring to empty the pokies, with some success I hope

Members not seen for a while included Wendy Bradley, Roger Brown, Jock Buntain, John Flyger, Barbara Gardiner, David Gibb, John Goodwin, Hedley Ham, Jack Helisma, Doug Imrie, Colin McNamara, Roy Peake, Tom Portelli, John Sanderson, Allen Thorp, David Schunke, Evon Whalen, Glenda White, Roy Willoughby

February 2011 lunch

Around 50 Members attended the February lunch with guest speaker Michael O’Brien  member for Malvern in the Legislative Assembly of the Parliament of Victoria and  Minister for Energy and Resources, the Minister for Gaming and the Minister for Consumer Affairs in the State Government of Victoria. Michael was accompanied by Sarah Leslie his Senior Advisor on Energy. He presented an interesting discourse on his diverse portfolio with particular reference to the problems in Melbourne with late night licensed venues, the proposed reforms of the gaming industry and a good summary of the 'benefits' of the not so smart meters we are all mandated to have installed. There is no point in denying access to the meter installers as we are already paying $70 per year through our energy bills. More to follow in the newsletter.

ANZROC Privilege Package

ANZROC PRIVILEGE PACKAGE

Chris Woods, National Manager of ANZ Staff Clubs and our ANZROC contact for ANZ matters, reports that they are now finalising the process for eligible retired officers with 30+ years to access staff banking benefits. As discussed with our ANZROC committee, they have hit a hurdle with retired officers accessing lending benefits via ANZ branch network, and as such have devised an alternative (and simpler) method for retired officers to access these, and all staff banking benefits. ANZ has created an email address for retired officers - This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. and also a postal mailbox - ANZ Retired Officers, Level 4 ANZ Centre, 833 Collins St, Docklands VIC 3008.

Quite simply, any retired officer with 30+ years who wish to avail themselves of a particular staff banking benefit can contact ANZ via either of the above two options, providing the following details:

* Name

* Address

* Years of ANZ service

* Nominate the product they wish to receive a benefit on.

* Advise whether this is an existing product they hold and simply want the benefit applied (benefits cannot be applied retrospectively) or whether it is a new application.

For existing products, the benefit will be applied shortly thereafter. For new applications, the retired officer will be advised of the exact process to receive the benefit.

Given this process has been established for lending benefits, ANZ has elected to adopt this process for all Staff Banking benefits. This eliminates any complications a retired officer may experience by attempting to have these benefits applied at branch level and expedites the process.

Due to the adoption of this direct process, it is unnecessary to provide eligible retired officers with a branch eligibility certificate. Upon contacting ANZ via email or post, the retired officer can be verified at that point in time. This will also eliminate any pain inadvertently caused to families by sending a certificate to a retired officer who may have passed away.

Attached to this newsletter are the December 2010 Staff Banking benefits available to eligible retired officers. As discussed with ANZROC Committee our retired officer members will be able to determine whether they wish to take up a benefit, and if so how to proceed. As Staff Banking benefits alter Chris Woods will provide ANZROC with an updated list. If you have any problems with the new process contact Ron Adams (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or post to PO Box 579, Malvern, Vic 3144 phone 9821 0444 ) or Neville Pearson (This email address is being protected from spambots.
