Hear from Volunteering Queensland President, Mr Brett Johnson about important updates to our constitution occurring in 2023. Mr Johnson explains the changes, timelines and other important events happening in our 40th anniversary year 2023.
This year marks a critical milestone in the history of Volunteering Queensland as we celebrate 40 years of being the state’s peak body for volunteering. Over the coming months, we look forward to reflecting on our proud history and celebrating the many stories and incredible moments that have shaped the sector since 1983.
While this year will be an important opportunity to look back over four decades of service, it is also an important time to look consider the future of Volunteering Queensland as we continue to respond to the ever-changing needs of our members and the broader volunteering sector and landscape.
Last year at our Annual General Meeting we informed members of our intentions to transition from an Incorporated Association to a Company Limited by Guarantee, enabling Volunteering Queensland to operate more efficiently as well as deliver on the goals outlined in Volunteering Queensland’s 2022 – 2026 Strategic Plan.
You are encouraged to attend a Question and Answer session online on 13 April 2023. Details to follow.
Please mark your diaries for a Special General Meeting to launch the new constitution on Wednesday, 31 May 2023.
