Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne 2023 Annual General Meeting & Packing Day

Last Sunday was an action-packed day for Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne!
We kicked off with a massive volunteer bicycle packing day in the morning. Over 15 volunteers helped prepare and pack donated bicycles into shipping container #32 – which is now almost completely full! Thank you to everyone who rolled up their sleeves and lent a hand – especially Sharon from Slipstream and the rest of the crew from Suntax.
After a spot of lunch, we commenced our 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM). We bade a fond farewell to Uri Gordon, our tireless Board Chair, who has put in an enormous amount of effort into supporting and expanding Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne. We’re confident that our new Board Chair, Mike Harley, and Vice Chair, Jodie Long, will fill Uri’s big shoes. If you would like to know more of what was covered at the AGM, you can view a digital copy of the 2023 Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne AGM CEO Presentation.
One of the highlights of the day was announcing the 2023 Matt McCullough volunteer awards. The two recipients, Amanda James and Matthew Bufaderci, have put in countless hours of work into supporting Bicycles for Humanity Melbourne’s vision. Thank you for all your work so far (and all your work to come!)
