A Special Meeting was held at Group61 on Thursday 7th April. This meeting was held to vote on the future of Group61. The Management Committee has been in close discussions with Wesley Mission Queensland and have together developed a future for Group 61 and proposed the following motion:

“Group61 Inc is to be wound up and deregistered as an incorporated association and transferred to Wesley Mission Brisbane in accordance with Clause 51 of the Group61 Inc Constitution.”
The proposal for Group61 to be merged with Wesley Mission Queensland was accepted with a unanimous vote by those members present and proxies with 1 abstention.
At the meeting members of the Management Committee and other members present expressed their excitement this opportunity offers and are looking forward to being able to concentrate on undertaking activities that enrich and augment the work of volunteers and the friendships that have developed with Friends as Wesley Mission takes over the governance and all that entails.
A further Special Meeting will be held in June to finalise this process. Following that meeting there will be a social occasion when we can join together to celebrate all that Group61 has achieved so far. We will also be celebrating that Group61 will continue to provide wonderful connections between Volunteers and Friends into the future.
Wesley Mission Queensland has engaged a contractor to assist in the transition of Group61. If you have any questions about what is happening, please contact her: Avryl Gration Ph: 0497 831 885.
