AGM - Thursday 28 June

posted Jun 7, 2018, 2:12 AM by Craig Miller   [ updated Jun 7, 2018, 2:12 AM ]

Wellington Down Syndrome Association

Annual General Meeting

This year’s AGM will be held on Thursday 28 June, 7.30pm at Wellington Early Intervention Trust, 79A Copeland Street, Lower Hutt.

Committee membership is currently very low. We don’t think that this reflects a lack of support for the Committee or the WDSA. However, the fewer people we have on the Committee, the less we are able to do as an organisation. The current Committee would like to encourage any WDSA members who would like to offer their services to the Wellington Down syndrome community as Committee members to come to the AGM and join the Committee, either as office holders, or as general Committee members.

It would be great to get your ideas about events for the following year. For example:

·       Christmas Party

·       Ball/Disco.

If you are interested in being involved but can’t make it to the meeting, please let us know info@wdsa.org.nz.
