OWN Qld – 2018 Annual General Meeting

OWN Qld – 2018 Annual General Meeting

The Older Women’s Network Qld Inc (OWNQ) held their 2018 AGM at the Merthyr Road Uniting Church, New Farm on Thursday 20 September. It was attended by over 40 members from all the branches of OWNQ. Everyone enjoyed the day.

Our guest speakers were Aloma Fennell (National Older Women’s Network) and Lorrae & Vince O’Rourke from Carers Outlook. Aloma spoke on the role that OWNQ and the other States’ organisations have to play in the advocacy of the rights and needs of older people. Lorrae & Vince O’Rourke spoke on the need for Carers to look after themselves and the O’Rourkes’ work in this area.

A special Thank You to Leonie Swainston (Coordinator), Marianne Wright (Administration Officer) and David Cameron (photographer extraordinaire) whose work made the day a success.

The members of our new Management Committee for 2018/19 are President Lee Hodgson, Vice President June Donnelly, Treasurer Barbara Barnes, Secretary Judith Heindorff, Committee Members Ruth Sargent, Helen Stanton and Pat Wendt. Congratulations to them all
