Members are invited to the National Trust (NSW)'s Extraordinary General Meeting. Help the National Trust (NSW) thrive into the future, network over drinks and canapés and view two exciting exhibitions in one afternoon.
The revision of the Rules is transformative, ensuring the National Trust keeps pace with changes caused by technology advancements, the pandemic and other factors.
The proposed amendments proactively respond to legal, philanthropic and digital changes including:
- alignment to the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC) governance requirements;
- better connection with members, through technology and virtual meetings, enabling AGM participation state-wide
- voting rights for volunteers with complimentary membership (gained through hours worked);
- diversity on the Trust board by providing members with an understanding of the skills and experience of current and potential directors. This includes a requirement that the Treasurer have accounting qualifications or equivalent;
- c ommittee flexibility with the ability to select the number of executive positions.
Afterwards, enjoy drinks and canapés as you browse Heart of Country: Arnhem Land Barks – a comprehensive exhibition of remarkable bark paintings that depict the relationship to Country, produced by four generations of Indigenous artists from Arnhem Land and beyond.
Guests are also invited a special viewing of the original 1960s AMP building architectural model as part of the Visions from Sydney Cove exhibition.
