Queen Street and West Woollahra Association Members should have already received the official notification and associated documents for the QSWWA Annual General Meeting, which will start at 6pm upstairs in the Queen Street Lounge at the Woollahra Hotel on Tuesday, 8 June. Doors will open from 5.30pm, so please come early to register so that we can start promptly.
This is our first AGM for two years and we think it is a great opportunity for members to reconnect after a dreadful year of lockdowns and restrictions. To put more emphasis on the social element of the meeting, we are changing the venue and format, with the Association providing drinks and canapes for members until 7.30pm. Using the Woollahra Hotel will also enable members to continue after 7.30pm, should they wish.
We have already received acceptances from our invitations send to Craig Swift-McNair, the General Manager of Woollahra Council, our local Cooper Ward Councillors Luise Elsing and Anthony Marano, ,our local state members, Gabrielle Upton, and our federal member, Dave Sharma. To keep the formal part of the AGM short, we will not be asking our guests to give a speech but will instead ask them to stay for the social part and give members a chance to meet with them individually, as their time permits. The Village Voice team – editorial, production, advertisers, contributors and subjects – have also been invited, as have representatives from the Woollahra Philharmonic Orchestra and Consort 8. As we go to press, we have already received over 60 acceptances from members, guests and supporters, so we are looking forward to a very convivial evening.
I encourage all members to attend to hear about the exciting plans we have for your Association, as well as to meet with our special guests, with the Village Voice team and our musical supporters. If you are not currently a member, you can still join by using the form on this website, or signing up at the door prior to the meeting.
Giles Edmonds, Vice President, QSWWA
