AGM 2018 done & Dusted
The GWHCC held its 31st AGM last night, and I am thrilled to announce we received a record number of nominations for some years, which reinforces the positive reputation of our organisation in community .
Of course, the primary reason is that they are committed to make the world a better place and you care about the mission to advocate, promote and support services for women and families to improve their health and well-being.
I am so very proud to be part of a progressive and inclusive organisation, that broke with tradition and accepted all the nominations to capture the passion and enthusiasm of the nominees. Our new members combined with the existing members serving have such a diverse skill set ,bringing a wealth of knowledge, energy, and expertise to the table.
Outgoing President Cherie Wallace presented her final report and recapped on the highlights and achievements of the past year. Among many, was the visit to our centre by The Hon. Mark McGowan MLA, Premier of Western Australia. The Premier was able to witness firsthand how valuable the Centre is to our community, and he was astounded by the number of services available from the Centre. He even took the opportunity to participate in one of the Tai Chi classes that was taking place.
There were a number of significant events to celebrate this year, however International Womens Day, is most definitely one that made me prouder than ever to be part of the GWHCC. The synergy of 500 plus women, coupled with headline speaker Dana Vulin, the story telling Midwife-Lisa Evan an array of inspiring local women sharing their stories and or singing their hearts out. Our surprise performers Matthaeus Duplessi & the Violins of the World were spectacular! The Sisterhood of the Goldfields left spell bound and empowered!!
Incoming President Ali Kent, stated in her maiden speech that she was humbled and is eager to harness some of the talents of the new Board to have visioning day in the near future with the aim of continuing to provide a growing and diverse range of quality services to women and their families in the Goldfields region.
In closing, I would also like to acknowledge and praise the dedication and hard work of the staff responding positively to the changes in the sector, their commitment to GWHCC ,our members and the community and our Board members consistently give generously of their time, knowledge and invaluable skills. We are fortunate to have such a dynamic group of women flying the flag of us.
