Project Numbat AGM - Call for Committee Members

Project Numbat's Annual General Meeting will take place on Tuesday 20th September 2016, 6.00 pm at the Perth Zoo.

There are less than 1,000 Numbats remaining in the wild. We are seeking new committee members to contribute to the awareness and protection of our iconic and uniquely Western Australian species - the Numbat.

Project Numbat has been in operation for over 10 years and has contributed approximately $70,000 towards conservation and awareness. Our vision is: Community awareness and involvement in the conservation of our unique mammal emblem.

We have many exciting projects that are either underway or waiting for the right opportunity. We are seeking members to become part of the committee and we believe that everyone has something to offer. We all bring our own expertise, time and of course a passion for the Numbat.

As a committee member you will need to hold a current membership, be available to attend monthly meetings held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at South Perth from 5.30pm and access to emails to keep up to date and provide input.

At the AGM, all positions will become vacant on the 20th September 2016.

We will have four executive positions available; President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. We also have five committee positions available and as part of the team you may choose to become involved in any of the following: organise attendance at events / fundraisers, write our quarterly newsletter, hold Numbat presentations, purchase and distribute merchandise, manage our website and social media, develop marketing materials, manage memberships, chair meetings, assist our paid accountant, develop new projects and collaborations, take meeting minutes, create videos and be updated on the recovery and survival of the numbat.

Our prime stakeholders include: Department of Parks and Wildlife, Australian Wildlife Conservancy and the Perth Zoo.
