Collingwood and Abbotsford Residents Association Annual General Meeting

By November 12, 2013 November 20th, 2014 Advice for Not-for-profit Organisations and Charities, News

This evening I was invited to speak at the Collingwood and Abbotsford Residents Association (CARA) Annual General Meeting to discuss membership engagement, as well as the use of marketing to engage with the community and other stakeholders.

The Annual General Meeting provided an opportunity to reflect on advocacy undertaken by the group. A particular priority is advocacy for public transport improvements, with the group seeking rail extensions and more frequent services.

I was able to discuss my involvement with the Public Transport Users Association (PTUA) and the public transport improvements I secured during my time as Councillor and Mayor for Maroondah City Council.

Residents Associations provide a conduit between the community and other levels of government, and it was great to share my experiences with the Collingwood and Abbotsford Residents Association.
