Time commitment

We realise that everyone is busy with family, work etc., so we only meet about 10 times per year for up to 2 hours in the evening at the Library, usually on the first Wednesday of the month, February through to November, 8:00pm-9:30pm.

The amount of time beyond this depends on the role you want to do, but smaller roles generally a few hours per month, larger roles can usually be completed in a few hours per week. We welcome any assistance you can provide!

Skilled members make up an important part of our Management and have a position description. These roles are not committee roles and as such will not be elected. The Skilled Members assist with some of the operational aspects of the toy library. These roles do not require meeting attendance and instead a short progress update can be emailed to the secretary prior to the meetings. However if you would like to attend meetings you are more than welcome to.

Don’t be shy! Come along to the next committee meeting, or speak to our coordinator, to find out more about how you can make a difference in your successful, not-for-profit community organisation.
