Members and friends of LCV are invited to attend our Special General Meeting – our first hybrid meeting giving you the option of joining via zoom or attending in person in Melbourne.

At this meeting, we will be asking members to vote on amendments to our Rules of Incorporation, which will enable us to apply for tax-deductible gift recipient status.

Following the formalities we will hear from our guest speaker – Fern Hames, Director, Arthur Rylah Institute for Environmental Research and Fellow of the Royal Society of Victoria, where our meeting is being held.

Fern will speak about the important role that private land conservation plays in the wider picture of Victoria’s biodiversity. For those who wish to read more, in December 2022 the Royal Society of Victoria released Towards Conservation & Recovery of Victoria’s Biodiversity – Report and Position Paper.

Fern is an inspiring speaker and she will touch on themes of behaviour change, collective action and impact and telling stories that encourage people to value, connect and act for nature. There will be time for questions and mingling, so we hope to meet some of you in person!


Date & time: Monday 1st May at 7pm
