We'll tempt you with æbleskiver and glögg, but if you cannot participate,
please complete the proxy form to help us ensure that we reach a
quorum on the day.
While the current team plan to mostly stay on, it would be good with a few more younger members join in the fun.
Proxy form HERE. The committee meets once a month during the year, as well we try and help out as workers at our regular events, but if you join the committee you will also have opportunities to do some of the fun jobs in the background, we have a monthly newsletter, membership management, treasurer, web-site and planing for future club improvement.
As well as the club is doing at present, it needs to be understood that some of us have been at it for several years, we need to anticipate the day where it is time to step down, and pass on to a new team.
The best way to prepare for a hand over, is to have new energy join the committee to work and learn over some time, before being confidently able to take over the responsibilities.
Anyway you can safely turn-up at the AGM, and enjoy the æbleskiver, just come and vote the committee back in.
As mentioned earlier in our newsletter the Danish law regarding Dual Citizenship has
changed, and as of September this year, you can now legally become a citizen of
another country and retain your Danish as well.
This affects among others, Danes around the world and in Australia who was born in Denmark, and now live in another Country.
Till now while your children (born here) had the option of being both Danish and Australian, you would have to make a choice.
Acquiring Australian and you could not keep the Danish, but YOU CAN NOW!
And not only can you do that, but all the Danes who over the years have lost their Danish citizenship, when they decided to become Australian, you can now by way of a simple declaration and payment of a fee re-acquire the Danish citizenship.
Time limit!... If you want to re-gain the Danish citizenship there is a 5 year period to September 2020 to apply.
12.30 pm for 1 pm start
