2017-07-29 17:36 - Andrew Ius
Posted by Lambviccmore from same (Australia)
AustraliaFencing New Zealand is greatly saddened to learn of the passing of  Andrew Ius, immediate past President of AFF, on 25 July 2017, following an extended period of illness.

Andrew contributed more than 30 years of selfless and devoted service to the AFF and the Australian fencing community, in a broad range of roles. He was a member of the former AFF Executive (and the current Board) for 32 years from his election in 1985 until his retirement at the 2017 AGM.

During that time, Andrew held a range of roles (including Treasurer, Secretary-General and Public Officer) and sat on a number of Commissions, including the Tournament Management Commission, the Finance & Administration Commission and the Selection Commission. He served as President of the AFF from 2009 to 2016.

Andrew also took on team management roles for a number of Australian representative teams and was instrumental in the successful hosting of key international events including the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and the Challenge Australia Epee World Cup.

Andrew's contribution to the AFF was recognised by the award of Life Membership in May 2017.

Fencing New Zealand joins with the Australian and international fencing community in sending our heartfelt condolences to Andrew's wife Helen Smith, son Adriano, daughter Pia and many family and friends.
