BLPC Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Tuesday October 12th, 2021, 7:45PM

Zoom

Join us for the 2021 Belgrave Lake Park Cottage Playgroup Annual General Meeting (AGM)!

Aside from some formalities that we need to cover, we will be celebrating US, our community of amazing players, reflecting on the year that has been and looking forward to the next one.

If you are considering joining our committee, come along to the AGM to get a feel for who we are, how we work and express interest in a role.

If by some magical miracle we can meet in person WE WILL. And if we DO, there will be a potluck dinner, wine and general merriment. Otherwise, Zoom it is.

Zoe will provide everything you need, including party animal models.

BOOK YOUR TICKET HERE: www.trybooking.com/BKABG

MEMBERS ONLY EVENT!

About the workshop:
I can’t promise to make your finances fun but I can promise that you’ll feel lighter and more capable of fun once we’ve wrangled your numbers into tangible information. This workshop will help you set up your family finances in a way that gives you greater control and security. You’ll have more information about your family's financial position than you ever thought possible and you’ll be ready to manage whatever financial situations come your way.

We’re currently in a time where, with every new announcement, comes huge changes to our financial situation. Take for instance the new announcements relating to childcare fees. The current recession that’s finally hit, no doubt brings many unknowns and potential anxieties with it. Our best chance at managing these changes with a sense of calm and security is by having complete understanding of our financial position so we know what choices to make next.

In this workshop we’ll define your core financial values so we can create a shame free budget that aligns with your beliefs and goals. We’ll use a range of approaches to interpret the information your budget provides so you can have a clearer understanding of what the essential items are. The aim of the workshop is to leave you feeling a sense of control and understanding over your financial position. I want you to feel secure and confident to not only manage your financial future but make it an empowering and rewarding experience too.
