Dear Friends of Rode RAGE,
17th March, 2014, Monday night at 8pm on ABC TV will be screened the follow up Australian Story episode about Tara Winkler and the Cambodian Children's Trust... perhaps a good opportunity for those of you who have been following/contributing to our Khmer Rode RAGE projects to learn more about CCT and Tara's story.
Also for those of you in Ballarat (or who know people in Ballarat) please see below some details of our upcoming fundraising movie night for The Lego Movie at the Regent Cinema on April 4th. Tickets need to be pre-purchased by April 1st (that is not a joke). Great for a family or work night out.... a movie for all ages. Please let me know if you would like some tickets.... or please pass the poster on to anyone you think may be interested.

8th February 2014
The BREAZE Incorporated Board met for a full day workshop on Saturday 1st February 2014. In attendance were the recently appointed Board members; Caroline Reisacher, Ian Rossiter, Jane Lean, Micah Demmert and Ross Rizzo along with Rachel Kinscher, Rene de Jong, Steve Burns and Stephen Roberts.
The first half of the workshop focussed on the current status of all BREAZE activities, including input from volunteers, the Smart Living Centre, finances of both BREAZE Incorporated and BREAZE Enterprises and compliance requirements. All Board Members must be fully briefed for good decisions to be made.
The second half centred around income generation and forming 4 functional groups which will allow BREAZE to become outwardly active again.
The function groups agreed upon are:
Governance: Lead – Stephen Roberts
Income Generation: Lead – Micah Demmert
Program Development: Lead – Ian Rossiter
Community and Volunteer Engagement: Lead – Caroline Reisacher
These groups are forming now. You’ll be hearing from us soon as we will be asking for volunteers on actions coming from the group leaders.
The Board also said farewell to Steve Burns who hosted us and participated in the day. Steve has resigned from the Board after many years of engagement with BREAZE. We wish him well.
