Surfing The Coldstream Festival AGM

LIVE Prawn Productions (LPP), the non-profit arts and cultural event team that operates the increasingly popular Surfing The Coldstream Festival, is inviting interested parties to contribute ideas at the association's AGM.

The public meeting will be held on Thursday 5 March at Wooloweyah Community Hall from 6.30pm and the committee will provide finger food, soft drinks, beer and wine.

Nominations have been lodged for all Committee positions, however, LPP members are invited to nominate for Committee positions if they wish to do so.

"We will also be sharing our vision for the next three years", LPP President, Phil Nicholas said.

This year's festival is on Saturday October 17 and the committee is looking to build on a solid organizational base.

"Last year was about identifying what could be reliably delivered by a small team and also about producing a promotional campaign that placed the event and its sponsors in front of a bigger audience," Mr Nicholas said.

"Our goal now is for the festival to generate a long-term return for local businesses and community by building Yamba's reputation as a destination."

LPP's commitment to the community festival and monthly Yamba River Markets was recognised recently in their winning the Clarence Valley Australia Day Award for Community Achievement, "which totally blew us away", Mr Nicholas said.

"As a bystander, it may not be clear what is required to run an event on this scale. Sometimes just a couple of hours volunteered can make all the difference."

Volunteer roles will be explained at the AGM, plus Mr Nicholas confirmed that future committee meetings would be open for non-members to attend and contribute ideas.
