Like all Neighbourhood Houses, Reynard Street Neighbourhood House is managed by a voluntary Committee of Management, made up from members of the local community.
At present, our Committee members are:
Philippa Day (Chair)
Owen Martin (Treasurer)
Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place on:
Our AGM was where our new Committee of Management was elected (see below for further information regarding the nomination and election process). We also reviewed our audited finances for 2018-2019 and reflected on an eventful year at the House.
This year, we also unveiled the new front entrance to RSNH. Last year we received a Capital Works Partnership Grant from Moreland City Council and sponsorship from Strathmore Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank to create a new entry to the House. We are very excited to show off our fresh new look and we hope you all like it too.
Our Committee of Management (CoM) consists of at least six volunteers elected at the Annual General Meeting of RRNH by those members of our Association (House members) who attend the AGM on the day.
The CoM provides RSNH with community “governance”, which includes developing strategic plans, policies, permanent staff appointment, budgeting and overseeing delivery of legal and contractual obligations. The CoM acts as the voice of our membership in line with the Aims and Objectives detailed in our Constitution.
The Committee is required to meet a minimum of six times per year, but currently meets monthly on a Tuesday evening between 5.30pm and 7pm.
All current full members qualify to nominate as potential candidates for our Committee of Management. We are always interested to hear from members who have skills and experience and are interested in contributing, and we encourage you to consider yourself as a potential candidate. We welcome requests for more information or support from any member seeking to understand more about this process.
For further instructions on how to nominate, please contact Lucy or Kelly at the House office on 9386 1728. Nomination forms are available here
If you became a member of our association more than 4 months prior to the AGM, you will be an eligible voter. As a member, you are welcome but also needed to help to ensure the voting reflects the broad interests of everyone who uses the House or lives in the neighbourhood. So please come along if you can.
