Who are the current Executive Committee members?
How do I nominate someone for Executive Committee membership?
Election of members to the Executive Committee occurs at an Annual General Meeting. The following form is to be used to nominate a person for membership of the Executive Committee.
How do we communicate with members and the public?
We produce an A5 newsletter three or four times per year which volunteers drop into all letterboxes in the area immediate around the Lagoon. Members living in the drop area receive their newsletter in a personally addressed envelope, while members outside the area receive it by Australia Post. The current and previous copies of the Newsletter are available on our website.
A noticeboard is installed at the wooden bridge across Greendale Ck at Park St.
A wide range of information about our activities is published here on our website. Members are able to log in to the website using their registered email address and password to comment on news items, post questions and join in discussions.
Members will from time to time receive communications from us via email. Examples include notice of any significant new issues or developments affecting the catchment, membership renewal reminders at commencement of new membership year, and special events.
We use social media channels to promote the Association and its activities to the general public and to encourage people to join as members.
The Association holds an Annual General Meeting usually in October. A special guest is always invited to address the audience after the business of the AGM has been dealt with. The AGM is open to the public and is traditionally well attended.
The Association does not typically hold regular general meetings with members. However, our website’s member access feature allows members to raise questions and express their views on current topics much as they would in person at a general meeting.
We host meetings for special reasons such as ‘Meet The Candidates’ at election time. Such events are advertised in a newsletter, the noticeboard, email, etc..
Lagoon Friends has a long tradition of mailing all members, VIPS, and others a personally addressed greetings card at Christmas.

The best viewing and interaction experience will be obtained when using a computer rather than mobile phone. A computer running any of the popular browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari) is ideal.
When using a mobile phone or tablet (Android or IOS based) the site is rendered differently so as to suit the smaller screen and lower processing power of those devices.
The site contains many reference documents in PDF format. We recommend where possible to set your browser to display PDF files directly in the browser rather than to download the PDF file before displaying it. Set the browser to display PDF files in dual-page (2 pages side by side) mode if possible.
