We’re Closed on ANZAC Day, 25 April 2015

Just a reminder – next Saturday is a public holiday, so we’re closed.

We’re open today though, so if you’re a Saturday REmida visitor, come in and top up. We’ll look forward to seeing you.

And REmida Day is only three weeks away, on 9 May. Can you make it?

Meet Eden and Paige

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.

REmida WA Introduces Membership Renewal Incentives

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.

Saturday 8 November – A Big Day for REmida WA

Two important events took place at REmida on Saturday 8 November.

The special general meeting held for the purpose of obtaining member approval to begin the modernisation of our constitution saw overwhelming support for the proposal to amend Section 8. As a consequence, your committee is now entrusted with the determination of membership subscription rates.

Later in the afternoon, our REboot! Members Exhibition opened in style in the REmida WA Art Space. We have an exciting and eclectic array of art, made mostly with our very own clean industrial discards.

REboot! is a celebration of creative reuse and has been brought about through the efforts of Volunteers Coordinator Josie McGushin, our volunteer team and the contributing artists whose work is showcased. Please drop in for a look if you can. The exhibition continues until 6 December.

Here’s a very quick look at the REboot! opening:
