I am writing to let you know that the Manning Clark House AGM will be held at 5:30 pm on 10 November 2016 at Manning Clark House, 11 Tasmania Circle, Forrest ACT. The Agenda is attached – if you have any difficulty reading it, let Ron Fraser know (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will send it to you in the body of an email.
We will be reporting to you on the work we have done so far this year to bring Manning Clark House alive again. There are many things still to be done, and we will need your help with them in 2017, so it would be great if you could come along on 10 November and give us your ideas and hopefully sign up for volunteering next year if you haven’t already done so.
We are also very much in need of some new active committee members based in Canberra to help us in our transition to an all-volunteer organisation without paid staff, so please be prepared to nominate as an office bearer and/or committee member if you would like to help in this way (see attached form).
I attach the following documents: Agenda for AGM 2016, Nomination for Office-Bearer/Committee Member, and the MCH Membership Form if you need to rejoin.
We very much look forward to seeing and talking to you at Manning Clark House at the AGM – it would help in catering for light refreshments if you could RSVP to me at the email or postal addresses shown at the foot of the Agenda. But if you’ve forgotten to do that, come anyway!
As we receive no ongoing government funding, we rely on the support of volunteers. If you have a special skill, and are willing to share it with the MCH community, please contact us by email or phone.
We often need extra help with gardening, supervising art exhibitions, book-keeping, marketing, hanging artworks, selling tickets at the door, looking after visiting celebrities and other tasks.
There are many advantages to volunteering: meeting interesting and like-minded people, making contributions to communities you value, using skills that you might not otherwise use, being appreciated by small organisations like ours.
All our volunteers get free entry to all events they have helped with, even if they’re not volunteering on the day.
Manning Clark House deeply appreciates all help, no matter how small. Get in touch with us to see how you can make a difference.
Members of Manning Clark House play a very important part in supporting, guiding and implementing the organisation’s program of activities through subscriptions, attendance and feedback at events and election to the Committee.
