On Friday 12 October 2019, Community Northern Beaches held their 2018 Annual General Meeting. A warm and friendly atmosphere prevailed as those who care about the organisation came together to cover official business, thank some of the organisations and people who have supported them during the past year and elect the Management Committee for the year ahead.
As manager of the Northern Beaches’ largest community hub, John’s role is a diverse one including responsibility for the strategic and everyday management of the centre. Starting the day before the centre’s doors open allows time to focus on admin so that when the doors are open, his focus is on people. In John’s words “people come before paper”. He chose to join the not-for-profit sector as he finds working in smaller, under resourced environments forces him to think outside the box, act with agility and a strength of purpose.
Today at Manly Community Centre we had the official launch of our new name, Community Northern Beaches. James Griffin MP, Member for Manly cut the ribbon to mark the occasion.
