Important Annual General Meeting
of the Victorian Environment Friends Network (VEFN)
6.30pm, Tuesday 10 November at The Corkman Irish Hotel, 160 Leicester St, Carlton.

What is the VEFN?
The Victorian Environment Friends Network is an umbrella committee of volunteers drawn form various “Friends of” groups to conduct forums of interest of Friends groups, to manage the annual “Best Friend Award” recognition of outstanding Friends’ contributions, to publish the quarterly FriendsNET newsletter and to represent and champion the issues of Friends.

What’s the future for the VEFN?
Unfortunately, the VEFN had to call off its tour of the Organ Pipes scheduled for 10th October as there were not enough registrations to conduct the day. This has made it necessary to re-schedule the AGM proposed to be held on the day. This AGM has now become the forum to consider the future of the VEFN.

If you think the VEFN still has a role to play, please join us for a meal at Carlton on Tuesday 10th November and consider joining our Committee. Two of our long-serving Committee members are stepping down and we need new people if the committee is to continue to represent Friends’ interests. Indeed, we may have to consider the very future of the VEFN.

What is involved in joining the Committee?
Apart from the rewards in joining with others to contribute to the VEFN’s activities, there are planning and review meetings about every second month in Carlton. Attendance can be by telephone.

If you can’t come to the AGM but are interested in joining the committee, or you have any comments or suggestions as to the VEFN’s future direction, I would love to hear from you at: or 0422 989 166 (please leave a message if no answer and I will return your call).

Convenor, Victorian Environment Friends Network
