In October, we held our Official Annual General Meeting (AGM) for 2018, followed by our White Ribbon Accreditation Celebration.
It was a great turnout with over 85 employees, special guests and dignitaries coming along to celebrate the year with our Executive Team; Communicare Chairperson and Board of Directors. Our Multifunction Room was packed full of people keen to learn more about our many achievements throughout 2017-18, including strengthening our financial sustainability.
Three staff members received awards and gifts for their Long Service commitment to Communicare. Deidre Parry was recognised for 15 years’ service and Cherry Slade and Charmaine Porter for 10 years. Well done to these staff members and thank you for your ongoing dedication to serving vulnerable individuals and families in our community.
Once the AGM formalities ended it was time to kick off our White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation Celebrations. Melissa Perry opened the celebration, followed by Chairperson of the Communicare Board, Hon. Jim McGinty and special guest speaker John Aggus from White Ribbon Australia.
Their speeches helped everyone to better understand the impact of domestic violence and celebrate our wonderful achievements of the Communicare Academy becoming a White Ribbon Accredited School and Communicare becoming a White Ribbon Accredited Workplace.
The closing speech of the evening was given by the Hon. Simone McGurk who we were lucky enough to have as a guest at our White Ribbon celebration, along with our Patron, the Hon. Ben Wyatt.
Thank you to everyone who came along and enjoyed the evening.
