AGM 2017 - You are invited to attend

Our Annual General Meeting is rapidly approaching, and all members are encouraged to attend.

It will be held at 4.30 pm on Friday 15 September in the Chapel Room (first floor) of the New Sydney Hotel, 87 Bathurst St, Hobart.

There's the usual business that an AGM has to deal with, to ensure we continue to operate legally, plus some major changes to our Constitution as part of our move to a new governance structure.  However this will not diminish the opportunities, and the need, for passionate people in the community to be formally involved in the organisation.

In fact we expect that our new structure will lead to greater understanding and involvement in community Landcare. It will include a skills-based Board for management and a Members Council for representation. If you've never considered a role in Landcare Tasmania, then now might be the time. There's fun to be had and fantastic people to work with, plus you'll be helping to continue to strengthen and grow community Landcare in Tasmania.

What's different this year?

Over the last year, the Landcare Tasmania's Committee and Executive have been reviewing the governance arrangements of the organisation.  Our current structure consists of a General Committee of up to 13 members elected at the AGM, who in turn elect an Executive Committee of 4.  Our advice indicates that:

  • The lack of a requirement for the Executive to have an appropriate range of skills introduces risks of being able to comply with the increasing scrutiny, regulation and expectations of not for profit organisations.
  • There is personal risk to General Committee members under the current structure.
  • The existing arrangements foster confusion about the roles of the different Committees in Landcare Tasmania.

To address this the AGM will consider changes that will introduce:

  • A skills-based Board responsible for proper management of the affairs of the Landcare Tasmania; and
  • A Members Council to provide advice to the Board, act as contact points and representatives of the broader membership, and to help implement our initiatives and activities.

Afterwards stay for a nibbles and a drink and have a chat!

There's MORE opportunity to be involved!
