LVI AGM - 29 May 2020 (rescheduled)

The LVI Committee of Management invites you to attend our 2020 LVI AGM on 29th May 2020 at 11 am via videoconference. Please rsvp to to receive the videoconference details and meeting papers when they become available.

As part of the AGM the LVI Committee of Management would like to propose a special resolution “That Landcare Victoria Inc. (A0011936S) adopt the newly amended Rules for the Association as circulated.” The proposed Rules (May version) and explanatory notes are available on the event page (link below). The purpose of these changes is to enable Landcare Victoria Inc. to successfully apply for Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status which will enable Landcare Victoria Inc. to accept tax deductible donations and access a wider range of grants for our members. There are several other minor changes being proposed as a result of member feedback highlighting inconsistencies or incompleteness in the LVI Rules.

The LVI Committee of Management is also calling for nominations for the positions in the Glenelg Hopkins & North Central voting regions as well as the Landcare Professional position.

Nomination forms and the Committee of Management role outline are available via links below.  The LVI Committee of Management has ten regionally elected positions for volunteers plus two professional landcarer positions. A single nomination was received for each position in Corangamite, North East, West Gippsland by the previously advertised closing dates so those nominees will be elected unopposed at the AGM.  Committee terms are staggered over three years therefore positions in the other regions will open in subsequent years. All nominations for the Glenelg Hopkins, North Central regions and the Landcare Professional position will be treated as nominations with any elections held on the day of the AGM per the LVI Election Policy.

Members Council nominations for Glenelg Hopkins, North East, West Gippsland are subject to renomination and there are vacancies in Corangamite, East Gippsland, Mallee (volunteers), North Central (volunteers), Port Phillip & Westernport and Wimmera (volunteers). Nominations can be made by sending an email to with subject “LVI Members Council Nomination” containing a nominee bio and plus supporting letters from two Voting Delegates and will go to the new Committee for consideration. More information regarding the Members Council is available below.
