The major commitment of a BeCA Management Committee member is to attend our 7 Management Committee Meetings and 4 Public Meetings each year. BeCA holds 7 committee meetings per year usually on the first Monday of the month at the Secretary’s residence and 4 General Public Meetings a year (also usually on the first Monday of the month) at Bellvista Meeting Place. Currently several of our Management Committee members set off for a month or so of travel as “Grey Nomads” so we then operate with fewer members. Other times there may be illness or family commitments to attend to.
Management Committee members can become involved for as much as their time or working commitments permit.
Cr Baberowski is a regular attender of most BeCA Management Committee meetings where he keeps the Management Committee and in turn the local community up to speed on Council issues. BeCA is able to raise our special local community concerns with him on a face to face basis.
In 2019 we are keen to increase Management Committee member numbers to ‘at least 8 but not more than 10’ to encourage more community involvement and to provide a backup for when other members are ill or are away.
Recently BeCA has been forced to accept the resignation of one of its Management Committee Members as a result of on-going family commitments. BeCA values ‘family commitments’ highly so reluctantly it accepted the recent resignation.
This has now created a temporary BeCA Management Committee vacancy which we can fill at our discretion. As we were wanting to increase our Committee Numbers for 2019, it seems the ideal time to encourage not just one, but up to three new members to become involved. There are three meetings remaining for 2018 prior to the AGM in November. A Management Committee Meeting in early August and early October and a Public Meeting in September. So any commitment at this stage would be minimal.

New ‘temporary’ BeCA Management Committee Members can therefore become involved on a trial basis. If it suits everyone, then a full year’s involvement should follow for 2019! We look forward to welcoming some new fresh faces onto our committee.
If you fulfill the requirements to be a BeCA Management Committee, and wish to become involved for the remainder of 2018, please contact the BeCA Secretary ASAP and put forward your expression of interest.
THIS LINK will take you to BeCA’s Contacts page and has our Secretary’s contact details.
We look forward to fresh faces, fresh ideas and fresh opinions and views so the Bellvista and Bells Reach Community Association can better represent the views of our community.
You are very welcome to become involved!
