Bryan Reid has been appointed the first Honorary Life Member of the JSA. At the 2009 AGM, newly-elected President Barrie Sheppard paid tribute to Bryan’s continuing contribution to the JSA since he became the founding secretary in 1993. He has since retired from the position and been succeeded by Barbara Niven.

Barrie presented Bryan with a commemorative plaque which read:

The Johnson Society of Australia Inc

Hereby confers Honorary Life Membership on

Bryan Reid

In grateful appreciation of his unique role in the

foundation and development of the Society.

Bryan’s son Sam, daughter Deborah, and long-time friend and fellow-JSA member Jan Lowe were present for the occasion.
