Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

Posted on 15 September, 2016 by Connecting Country

Connecting Country members and supporters are encouraged to help us to think big on the evening of Tuesday 11th October 2016!  We are holding our 2016 Annual General Meeting, and as part of this we have also invited six local experts to share their vision for the Mount Alexander landscape. Please join us as we work together to consider the future directions for Connecting Country. It’s also a great chance to catch up with Connecting Country staff, committee and other friends.

The AGM will be held at the Campbells Creek Community Centre (Elizabeth Street, Campbells Creek) with the formalities taking place from 6pm until 6.30pm. CLICK HERE to view a copy of the agenda.

If you are a Connecting Country member, then:

  • You are entitled to vote on any and all relevant agenda items.  If you are unable to make it to the AGM, but still wish to vote, then proxy forms are available. These must be received at least 24 hours before the AGM is held.
  • You are also able to nominate to join the Connecting Country committee.  If you are interested in applying to join the committee, you are encouraged to contact the current president – Brendan Sydes – to talk more about what is involved in being on the committee, and the opportunities that are available ( A copy of the CC committee nomination form can be downloaded (CLICK HERE).

Please contact Chris ( if you are unsure if you are a member; if you’d like a proxy form; or if you’d like a copy of the 2015 AGM Minutes or 2015-16 Financial Statements to read before the meeting.

From 6.30pm until 7pm, a light meal will be provided including locally made vegetarian soups and bread, along with tea, coffee and other drinks.  There are no costs for the meal, but gold coin donations are appreciated.

At 7pm, six local experts share their vision for the Mount Alexander landscape. Geoff Park, Beth Mellick, Ian Higgins, Paul Foreman, Carla Meurs and Ann-Marie Monda have five minutes each to provide their ‘think big’ vision, which explores the possibilities for this region into the future.  This will be followed by group discussions around how we could turn these visions into a reality.

In the lead up to the AGM we are conducting a survey which will also help inform our future direction. To participate in this survey please CLICK HERE.
