MEMBERS TOWN HALL MEETING

While 2020 has tried its best to derail the plans put in place for this year’s PrideFEST celebrations, the Pride WA Management Committee has been working tirelessly to turn the lemons we’ve been served into the best Pink Lemonade we can brew.

With the recent announcement around the lifting of restrictions, the path forward is starting to look much clearer. And we are now in a position to start rebuilding the plans for 2020.

As a member organisation, we greatly value the views and inputs of our members. Therefore, we ask you to join us at a Town Hall meeting to discuss how we can deliver the best PrideFEST in the circumstances. The Town Hall meeting will be held on Saturday, 11 July 2020 from 10.00am at the North Perth Town Hall, 26 View Street, North Perth.

With capacity restrictions still in place, RSVPs are essential. Please let us know by return email (pride@pridewa.com.au) whether you will be attending. If capacity is reached, we will arrange alternative ways for members to get involved.
