The Management Committee
The Chinchilla Community Kindergarten Inc. is an incorporated association and is run via the rules of our constitution. An executive management committee elected from the current year’s parent body at the Annual General Meeting, manages the constitution, combined with the guidelines set out by C&K.
In order for the Kindergarten to run, we must elect a management committee consisting of a President, Vice-president, Secretary and Treasurer. Also a fundraising sub committee, book club officer, grants officer and maintenance officer may also be elected. Without parental support of the committee, the Kindergarten will not run. It is very important that parents attend general meetings to ensure opinions are voiced and the Kindergarten can run as smoothly as possible.
President: Grace Hogarth
Vice-President: Sarah Todd
Secretary: Ellissa McCullough
Treasurer: Angela Marsden
Annual General Meeting
The AGM is held in February each year. Annual President, Director and Treasurer reports are presented and a new committee is elected.
Each term a meeting is held to discuss business, fundraising and to make decisions to ensure the smooth running of The Chinchilla Community Kindergarten. All parents are invited to attend these meetings. Parent participation is vital to the smooth success of the Kindy. Meetings can not be conducted without a quorum of parents. An agenda is posted the week before the meeting.
The following positions need to be filled each year. Being part of the committee is a rewarding experience and we are sure you will look back on this time fondly. Please consider what you may have to offer to these positions as the Kindy relies on parent involvement.
