Club Meeting February 42015 Longford Park

6.15 for a 6.45 dinner.

 Speaker: Liz Jamieson-Hastings:  

That Liz Jamieson-Hastings is sane, sober and still standing is a miracle.  At 21 she was a hopeless alcoholic; now she is a respected counsellor, decorated for her services to the community, which include substance abuse programmes in schools, prisons and even the US Navy. Her inspirational story is one of privilege and social advantage preceding a spectacular fall from grace.  Liz will bring with her copies of her fascinating book Still Standing:  From Debutante to Detox

 Husbands, partners and friends are very welcome to join us for this meeting.

Board meeting notes:

 The club subscription remains the same as for last year - $190.00.  This is now payable.

  • Zonta International has refreshed the Zonta brand identity.   The refreshed theme is Empowering Women through Service and Advocacy.  See for full details
  • We will be trialing a new room set-up for the meeting in February
  • Mariee Hawkins has accepted the club invitation to join Friends of Zonta.
  • If any guest you bring to a club meeting might be interested in becoming a member, please introduce her to Julie at the start of the meeting.
