One of the very special things about Stroud Community Lodge is our relationship with the local community. When establishing the Lodge in 1990, Stroud Lions Club ensured that every community group in the district had the right to membership of the Lodge Association. This guarantees that the community continues to have a say in the future of this vital facility.
The 48 local residents who represent 24 of these community groups on the Lodge Association are encouraged to attend the Lodge’s annual general meeting on Wednesday 27 September at 7.30pm at the Lodge.
We encourage all of our current members to consider nominating members to the Lodge board, which will be elected on the night.
Groups who are not currently represented are encouraged to nominate members to the Association. You’ll find more information about Lodge membership here or call our chair, Rod Williams, on 0439 193 288.
Would you like to join our board?
Up to ten Board members can be elected at the Lodge Association’s annual general meeting each year. Board vacancies can also be filled by members of the Association throughout the year.
People join not-for-profit board for different reasons – to give back to their community, gain experience in a particular industry, or learn about how boards work.
You don’t need any particular qualifications or skills to be a Board member – as chair Rod Williams says, you just need “common sense, a keen set of eyes, open ears and a clear mind.” Plus we provide on-the-job training!
You’ll find more information about our Board members here or you can call our chair Rod Williams on 0439 193 288.
Please note – nominations to join the Board are due seven days prior to the AGM on Wednesday 27 September 2017. Forms should be sent to Lodge Association secretary Tess Hilleard at firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped in to Stroud Community Lodge.
