Re: [Computerbank] Re: Nomination forms

Hi all

I hope this helps to clear the air

1. We also pay membership and buy paper and alot of other things
ourselves, it seems to be a popular misconception that we in Vic are
rolling in it.
2. We employ 3 people 1 Executive Officer and 2 Work for the dole co
ordinators and lease premises this means we have to budget and find min
$3000 per month. Mostly funded by our WFTD project.
3. No, state reps don't automatically become members of CAI
you have to be a financial member before you can be a State Rep as they
are full National committee members and according to our constitution you
have to be a full
financial member to be on the committee.
4. There are only 31 members and the money for membership goes to the
states but has to be reported and receipted to the national committee as
they are responsible for the financial reporting( to the Auditor
General)of the whole organisation.
5. There is going to be some seed funding available for other state
6. You should also be aware that all registered volunteers whether members
or not are covered by our Volunteer Insurance if they are on CAI business
anywhere in Australia.

Please send along any other comments, queries and ideas these will all
help to make our organisation better.
