Next month we will be electing our new committee for 2021/22 at the AGM:

Sunday 17 October at 11.00 am
Cooroy Community Permaculture Gardens
26 Emerald Street, Cooroy

Due to the retirement of our last President the positions of President, Vice President and Secretary will be declared vacant at our AGM, as well as 6 ordinary committee member positions. We have already received nominations for 3 existing committee members who are up for reelection, and there are 3 returning committee members. Under our constitution, all committee positions are held for a two-year term, with only half the committee elected each year.

All nominations will be published on Monday October 4, two weeks prior to the AGM, and voting, if necessary, will take place at the AGM on Sunday 17 October.

The committee is extremely active throughout the year – a position on the committee involves a lot more than just turning up to a monthly meeting. But the rewards are enormous, and never more so than next year, when we see our Cooroy Community Permaculture Gardens truly become the hub of Permaculture Noosa with the construction of our new pavilion. There will be more workshops, demonstrations and social events – it will be a very exciting time for the committee, our members and the local community. So if you are enthusiastic and willing to help out, and wish to work with a dynamic and dedicated team, we’d love to hear from you.

To be eligible to nominate for our committee, you must be a current financial member of Permaculture Noosa. You will need to complete a nomination form (also signed by a nominator and seconder) and email it to secretary@permaculturenoosa.com.au by Sunday 3 October. Visit the website for details.

Our Club Day will commence at 9.00 am with our Seed Savers meeting, plant and seed sales, and our free harvest swap. Our guest speaker will address the group at about 10.30 am and will be announced in our next Permanews. The AGM will begin at 11.00 am, which will see a brief report from our outgoing Acting President, the 2020/21 Financial Report, and the election of our new committee. We hope to see you there.
