reminder for upcoming forum

Quick reminder to everyone about our forum next week with CERA CEO Roger Sutton on Thursday 3 July at 7:30pm in the Oak Room at The Atrium (Netball Centre) on Hagley Ave.

Here's the news for you we have in this update:
  • July Forum Reminder
  • Announcement from the Register

July Forum Reminder
As we hope you already know, the next OVTRK forum will be with CERA CEO Roger Sutton. The forum will discuss how NGOs, and the communities we work within, can become meaningfully involved in the rebuild (with special reference to the central city and the residential red zone).
     Date and Time: Thursday 3rd July, 7.15pm for refreshments, 7.30pm start

     Location: Oak Room at The Atrium (Netball Centre, Hagley Avenue).

We have emphasised the value we place on participatory processes and the hope to leave an enduring legacy for us and our children after us.
This open Forum will take questions and comments from those who are involved with a community-initiated group/non-profit/NGO/whatever else you like to call yourselves - as described in our kaupapa.
This Forum is a follow-up from the March OVTRK Forum. We recently sent a letter of thanks to the participants in our last Forum - Arihia Bennett (Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu), Lianne Dalziel (CCC), David Ayers (WDC), Malcolm Lyall (SDC) and Dame Margaret Bazely (ECAN).
As many of you know, Roger Sutton (CERA) was expected at that Forum.  Due to his absence that evening we were given the opportunity to meet with Roger and with Benesia Smith, CERA Deputy Chief Executive Strategy and Governance on 10th April.  We addressed the questions for CERA listed in the letter of thanks sent to Forum participants.

Announcement from the register
We've been asked to share a special announcement from Christchurch Community House about the opportunity for your organisation to be closely involved with the Trust by becoming a tenant in the new central Christchurch premises currently being fitted out at the former Christchurch Star building located at 293 Tuam Street. 

Christchurch Community House Trust is a group of non-profit organisations committed to making a difference through modelling a strong connected community.

That's all for now.  See you on the 3rd!
