The Annual General Meeting of Rainbow Club took place on Sunday, 25 September 2016 at 10.00 am at Ravenswood College, Henry Street, Gordon.  The Agenda for the meeting is below.
The meeting was followed by a short presentation by Jodi Rose to gauge interest in the demand for workshops on carers of children with special needs.
A highlight of the morning was  the announcement of the Aqua Award winners. When nominations closed we had a total of 27 nominations which illustrates the great work being done right across the Rainbow Club Community

Call for applications for 2 Rainbow Club Australia Board positions
The Rainbow Club constitution allows for a maximum of 12 members with 2 places reserved for people who are representatives of member clubs.  The club representative positions are currently filled by Rob Beaven, Manager at Warringah Rainbow Club and Ally Cox former Manager of the Buxton Rainbow Club (now suspended).   If you are interested in contributing to Rainbow Club at a Board level, please forward a short resume with some information about your interest to the General Manager at info@rainbowclubaust.com.au who will arrange for it to be considered by the Board.
