About Saltbush Membership

Saltbush membership allows likeminded individuals to become involved in what we do, follow our work, or provide input to future programs.


Staying in touch through membership can create opportunities and synergies within our community, and help us to deliver meaningful, long term outcomes.


We encourage and support a strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander member representation to further support us in providing effective and appropriate programs to the Indigenous community.

Eligibility


Membership to Saltbush is open to any individual that supports the values and purpose of the organisation.

Saltbush members agree to:

  • support Saltbush Social Enterprises to achieve its objectives;

  • contribute wherever possible to improving the lives of disadvantaged people in our community;

  • act ethically and with integrity, decency and respect;

  • not be involved in corrupt or unlawful practices, discrimination or similar inappropriate behaviour;

Membership Benefits


There is no cost to becoming a member. We keep our members up to date with the work we are doing and provide opportunities to be involved where possible. We have member only events from time to time and we invite members to other events they might enjoy or network at. Members have access to any assistance or scholarships that can be made available through our fundraising, for such things as governance training.


Member Rights & Obligations


Members may attend any member meetings or events. There is no obligation to attend a minimum number of meetings or participate in any activities, however we encourage members to provide their vote on matters when it is required, either in person, through their own proxy, or by appointing the Chairperson as their proxy.  
Members vote on matters such as appointment of Directors and changes to the Constitution. Most decisions are made once a year at the Annual General Meeting.
