Committee for Geelong seeks Community Members

The Committee for Geelong (CfG) is calling for local community groups to express interest in applying for Community Memberships following recent changes to its membership structure.

Since its inception, the CfG has made a commitment to inviting local community organisations to be part of its membership base.

The CfG recently introduced a new membership and partnership strategy, which includes broad changes across all levels of its memberships.

CfG CEO Rebecca Casson said the new strategy ensures transparency and accountability to the CfG's members.

"Community Memberships will now be sought on an annual basis, whereas this was previously only undertaken every three years.  While Community Membership places are limited, we sincerely hope that community groups in Geelong will apply to work with us."

A CfG Community Member session will be held on 12 May to provide more information on the changes.

To be eligible, applicants should be a not for profit organisation within the G21 region, which includes the municipalities of City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast, Colac Otway, Golden Plains and Queenscliff.

Previous CfG Community Members have included The National Trust of Australia (Victoria), Back to Back Theatre, Bethany Community Support, St Mary's of the Angels Basilica, Wathaurong Glass, Geelong Environmental Council, Diversitat, Barwon disAbility Resource Council, Kardinia Community Services Inc., Salvation Army, Encompass Community Services Inc. and Friends of the Botanic Gardens.

Community groups can download a copy of expression of interest form on CfG's website /about-us/join/ or register to attend the information session at
