The ACA was incorporated in September 2009 as a means for residents to become involved in the community.
Each year at our Annual General Meeting, current paid up members must nominate and vote in an Executive Committee to oversee the running of the ACA. Without a functioning committee the ACA will cease to function.
This year, due to legislative changes, current paid up members will also have to vote on the adoption of new rules for governing the Association.
What does an executive committee do?
The ACA is run by an executive committee (President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Ordinary Members) who are committed to Epping North/ Wollert residents in wanting to connect them in their community, create opportunities for social gatherings and to take action on their behalf about local problems.
As a committee member it will take up some of your time as you will be required to:
– attend regular committee meetings (four plus the AGM),
– where possible attend quarterly general meetings and help with ACA events,
– and also raise issues on behalf of the community.
No previous committee experience is required to be part of the ACA executive committee, just an interest in improving and strengthening the local community, willingness to work as part of a team, and the ability to reliably to attend scheduled meetings/ events. You can find out more about the roles and responsibilities of the ACA executive committee by going to the Association Structure page of the ACA website.
How do I stand for an executive committee role?
People must be a current ACA member and complete a nomination form to be eligible to take on an executive committee role. Please ensure you are nominated and seconded by two different ACA members. Forms can be submitted any time up to immediately before the AGM in person- please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss and organise the nomination. Signed hard copy forms returned via post (to 2 Snugburgh Way, Epping North, Victoria 3076) need to be received at least 24 hours before the event.
If you would like to become involved and work with the ACA to see the community grow and develop, please register your interest by emailing the Executive Committee your phone contact details on email@example.com and we will call you about the role.
