It is that time again - the WECA AGM. A great time to reflect on the year that has been and to discuss plans and ideas for 2016. Our AGM meetings are short, sharp and we also have time for some lively discussion.
WHEN: Saturday 5 December
PLACE and TIME to be confirmed - we are awaiting response on the venue. We plan to have the meeting at Souths so that you can do some shopping and drop in for the AGM.
Members of WECA are eligible to vote at the AGM and also to nominate for positions on the Management Committee.
This year we are very sorry that some of our long serving amazing MC members need to retire due to personal and professional reasons. Darren Godwell, David Bratchford and Jacqui Walters will be standing down. Vashti Bland also stood down earlier in the year. They have been amazing members of the WECA team who have given so generously to the community - they will be incredibly missed. It is hard to thank them enough for their contribution and for generally being fantastic to work with. One of the things that is so amazing about WECA is the fantastic vibrancy of the team to achieve amazing things for the community. It happens from the "make it happen" attitude and creativity of the team.
We have a number of nominations however we are also interested to hear from you - Do you have some specific skills and interests in one or more of these? These are some skills we are (especially) keen to have in the team:
- do you have financial and admin experience ? Are you happy to provide a couple of hours a month towards some admin and finance tasks? Our Treasurer has good systems in place and will provide handover.
- planning and urban design experience or knowledge and a deep sense of care and vision for the peninsula? There are some big DAs and it is very beneficial to have in house expertise in this area.
- events planning and passion to create vibrant events that build the sense of community? The West End Festival, Kurilpa Derby, West End Festival as well as some smaller events and community building is core to WECA celebrating Kurilpa.
Please email or call Erin on 0448848016 - we would love to hear from you!
