Thanks for everyone who turned out for our AGM which turned out to be a great event. Nick and Stuart from Woden Community Services gave a great presentation detailing how they performed a major IT overhaul for their group, with great results. What’s more, they brought copies of all their high quality documentation to share. Brilliant! Then we surprised Andrew Tridgell with Kate Lundy dropping by to do a small presentation bestowing to him life-membership and a new Sonic Screwdriver. A heartfelt speech for someone who has helped a lot. The business end of the AGM concluded quickly with Darrell Burkey re-elected as President, Amanda Plowright as Vice President, myself as Committee Member and we’d like to welcome Stuart Hogan to the committee as well. Thanks for volunteering!
CASE’s Annual General Meeting wrapped up this evening after a small but pleasant gathering. Patron Sen. Kate Lundy arrived just in time to stop the Web 2.0 version of herself stealing the show and what followed was a relaxed, informal talk about human engagement through technology. After Kate’s presentation we briefly looked at the year behind us, Darrell detailed VISE’s Online Volunteer Management System (developed by CASE over a number of years), our trip to the Dharriwaa Elder’s Group in Walgett, and welcomed new members Hepatitis C Council of NSW, among others.
Business as usual followed, then the nomination of committee members for the coming year. Darrell Burkey maintains his position as President, Amanda Plowright maintains her position as Vice President and I have been returned as a committee member.
Looking forward to the year ahead!
CASE is holding it’s Annual General Meeting Tuesday 22 September. We’re please to announce that Senator Kate Lundy will be presenting a talk on Government 2.0 & Citizen Engagement from 5:30pm, preceding the AGM proper. Senator Lundy has been a patron of CASE and involved in web technologies for quite some time now. We’re hoping for an illuminating talk that looks at the recent developments of her #publicsphere initiative and the federal government’s Government 2.0 initiative.
