Updating your group's financial membership and committee

It's that time of year when Sustainable Neighbourhood groups need to start planning for updating their membership and committee for the 2014-15 financial year.

Each year your local Sustainable Neighbourhood group needs to hold a 'Special meeting', (equivalent to a local Annual General Meeting).  If you haven't held one for 2014 yet, then please do so before the Alliance AGM - tentatively scheduled for 2 November.

Here are some detailed instructions if you need some guidance.

Please feel free to get in touch if you need assistance with any aspect of this process.

Upcoming Sustainable Neighbourhood events

10 June - Birds in the Southlake Area

22 July - Online collaboration training

6 August - 'Reduce - Prepare - Respond' Education Kit training.  Details to be confirmed.

The community calendar lists heaps of upcoming sustainability events by Sustainable Neighbourhood groups and other organisations.
