At the Special General Meeting held on 30 May, 2016,
the subscription renewal date was set for July 1 each year.
This means volunteers at Footscray Historical Society no longer have to issue renewal notices on an individual basis.
The Model Rules state that the purpose of the society is:
“to advance culture by:
- recording and cataloguing the history of the Footscray district
- collecting, preserving, and exhibiting items of historical significance to the Footscray district for the benefit of the community
- advocating for the conservation, restoration and maintenance of buildings and sites of historical significance to the Footscray district for the benefit of the community
- fostering public awareness of, and interest in, the history of the Footscray district.”
