Meet the team
We are a group of Sydney-siders who love our city, and want to make it a more equitable place for all. We recognised that by pooling our funds and effort, we could have a greater impact in our community. We are all volunteers, and share our time and knowledge freely. We are all active donors to the Impact100 Sydney program.
In late 2015 we formed the Impact100 Sydney Advisory Committee. We meet on a bi- monthly basis to support the growth and development of the Impact100 Sydney program. We all share a common vision to grow the model in Sydney and see many more Impact100 groups form around key issues or geographic areas.
Each committee members champions a key area of work relating such as membership engagement, communications, events, governance, and our granting process.
Anyone interested in participating in the Advisory Committee is encouraged to do so - our meetings are open to all Impact100 Sydney members. Just get in touch with Corinne Kemp at corinne@impact100Sydney.org.au so that she can link you in. We conduct most of our meetings via Skype at 8pm AEST.
