Mid Year Celebration

It's been a busy month at 2RPH with the organisation of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Christmas Party! This year, both events will be held on Sunday 25 November at the Glebe Town Hall.

The Annual General Meeting (AGM)

This year, the AGM will be a succinct 60-minute event, finishing 30 minutes prior to the start of the 2RPH Christmas Party. It will be in an adjacent room to the larger function space for the Christmas Party. The standard format for the AGM will be followed, starting with Apologies and Minutes of the previous meeting before finishing with guest speaker Patrick Joseph McClure, AO.

Patrick Joseph McClure is the chair of the Review Panel of the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC) Acts. Between 2014 and 2015, he chaired the Reference Group on Welfare Reform, culminating in a 2015 final report entitled, “A New System for Better Employment and Social Outcomes.

He is a director of The Institute of Strategic Management and The Kincare Group, a commercial in-home aged care provider, and a former chief executive of Mission Australia and the Society of St Vincent de Paul (NSW/ACT). Patrick is also a member of the NSW Government Social Impact Investment Expert Advisory Group and a selector for the Community Services Panel for the Churchill Trust (NSW).

Christmas Party

Following the success of the Mid-Year Celebration in August 2018, this year’s 2RPH Christmas Party will be shorter in length and will include several new elements: volunteer solo performers, a Christmas choir and two different awards presentations. Long-serving volunteers (those who have contributed for 20 or more years) who could not attend the mid-year function or who were missed will be acknowledged at the Christmas Party. 

A new element will be introduced to this year’s Christmas Party celebrations – the Generosity of Spirit Volunteer Awards. The aim of these awards is to acknowledge and value the contributions of current volunteers who have shown a generous spirit in their work with 2RPH – whether through their reliability in taking on extra shifts, their willingness to help and support a colleague in the recording studio, or with their patience and warm nature in welcoming new recruits to the station.
