National Conference 2017 - Legacy
|The Legacy Club of Wollongong and South Coast Inc. is proud to host the 81st Legacy National Conference in 2017 which coincides with our 70th year as a chartered Legacy Club. |
The Conference is being held over a three day period from Tuesday 17th October to Thursday 19th October 2017 at the Novotel Wollongong Northbeach. On the afternoon of Day 1, following registration, there will be a memorial service and a meet and greet cocktail party at the conference venue. On day 2, our Club will host the 2017 Legacy Australia Inc. Annual General Meeting which will address those governance issues that are an essential part of any organisation. Day 3 will see us in full Conference mode with the theme being “Managing a Smaller Legacy”. The intention is to make this a Conference of Legatees where we can converse openly around a number of issues affecting our ongoing support to Legacy Beneficiaries. It promises to be a day of inspiring ideas and aspirations that can be taken away by Club representatives and our elected Directors to improve the support for our widows and dependants over the coming decades. The day will end with the Conference Dinner and it is planned that our principal guests will be the Governor of NSW, His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d) and Mrs Linda Hurley. The General is originally from the ‘Gong and is a strong supporter of Legacy.
For those that are accompanying delegates and observers there will be the opportunity to enjoy some special attractions of the region such as the Buddhist Nan Tien Temple, the panoramic view from the Illawarra Fly, the delights of the Southern Highlands and perhaps spectacular Jervis Bay.
Our Club has six groups in an area ranging from Helensburgh in the North to Wolumla in the South and inland to the top of the coastal ranges. It is a beautiful coast encompassing the Illawarra, the Shoalhaven and Sapphire Coast and we hope that the members of the Legacy family will take the opportunity before or after the conference to explore these magnificent areas.
The Legacy National Conference is a special event in the Legacy calendar; one that gives Legatees and their partners a chance to exchange ideas, reunite with friends and to enjoy the comradeship which has underpinned our unique organisation for the past 93 years. We look forward to welcoming you at the ‘Gong in 2017.
Legatee Peter Florance
