Committee Recruitment Drive 2021

We are looking for new committee members in 2021!

Though we love to see new faces on committee at any time of year, September is a particularly great time to do it. Why? Because that is when we host our Annual General Meeting. Our AGMs are a great opportunity for members to come along and see how the Toy Library is faring, what our goals are for the next twelve months, and meet the existing committee.

At our AGMs we also declare all Committee Positions OPEN! We are always hoping for an injection of fresh talent to help us fill our roles (you can see our committee positions here). If you have existing skills in a particular area, or if you’re eager to learn some new skills in a specific role, we’d love to have you on board as a Positioned Committee Member.

We also welcome those who aren’t up for the time commitment of some of our Positioned Roles. Non-Positioned Committee Members (after their training) complete a minimum of one shift a month, and may choose to attend meetings if they like. Or not!

When you think about the benefits of being a committee member, it’s a pretty fantastic deal. Committee members get:

  • 50% discount on their Toy Library fees
  • FREE Party Pack hire
  • NO late fees… ever!
  • A key to access the toy library
  • The ability to volunteer and give back to the community with your kids in tow
  • Resume boosting experience
  • The opportunity to meet a great bunch of people

This year’s AGM will be held on Tuesday, 7th of September. If restrictions allow, it will be hosted face-to-face in Spring Gully. The meeting will also be accessible via Zoom. If we are unable to meet in person, the meeting will be online using Zoom.
