A special General Meeting of the The Father Bačinskas Lithuanian Cultural Association Inc is to be held on Sunday, 2nd July 2017 at the Lithuanian House, 49 Gladstone Road, Highgate Hill, Qld 4101 at 12.30pm.
It is important that a quorum is achieved for this meeting in order for the decision to be validated. As per the our constitution (23.1) ’At any general meeting the number of members required to constitute a quorum shall be double the number of members presently on the Management Committee plus one.’ We have 10 members on the Committee, so general meeting quorum is 21.
General Meeting is held in order to get members approval to change status of The Father Bačinskas Lithuanian Cultural Association Inc from non-profit organisation to non-profit charity organisation. Raised funds would be used to maintain, promote and foster Lithuanian culture in Australia which would include (but not limited to) establishing Lithuanian school for kids, expanding library, organising various cultural events. We would not be the first Lithuanian organisation to seek this status.
