Last Saturday saw another highlight for REmida WA, as we welcomed members and visitors to our West Perth centre for our REmida Day 2015 festivities. With food, music, face painting and other attractions, including a very popular gift-making workshop, the day had something for everyone.
REmida volunteer and Board member Jackie Johnson opened her very attractive exhibition in the REmida Artspace and more than 30 members came in to collect material. REmida buzzed with activity, excitement and fun.
Our volunteer & staff team, led by Chair Alan & General Manager Eden, worked tirelessly in planning and preparing for our big day, to deliver an enjoyable and memorable experience for our members and visitors.
Thanks team – you did REmida proud.

We’ve undergone some major staffing changes here at REmida recently, with the departure of former General Manager Dougie Scott and Volunteers Coordinator Josie McGushin (who is currently finishing up a special project).
Our new General Manager is Eden Lennox, who brings a wealth of experience in the not-for-profit sector to her new role. Eden, who paid tribute to the organisational foundation laid by Dougie, intends to develop the delivery capabilities of REmida with a view to growing our educational markets. That change will see more focus by REmida on the planning, design and delivery of educational products and services.

Are you one of our loyal members who regularly renews and maintains continuity of their memberships? REmida wants to reward you!
Currently there is no loyalty incentive in our fee structure for members who renew regularly. As a consequence we experience high levels of membership turnover, with associated higher administration and processing costs. We intend to address that by way of the following:
• Effective on and from 1st December 2014, a renewal incentive of an additional month’s membership will apply to all membership renewals, provided the renewal maintains continuity of membership.
• Effective from 1st January 2015, we will be introducing a joining fee of $15, payable with any application for a new membership, or where a renewal is not continuous.
So if you want to join REmida or revive a lapsed membership, be quick, because the new fee will apply from 1st January next year.
