G2Z Steering Committee Meeting
The G2Z Steering Committee met in November for the first time in over 12 months.
There was lots of state and local news to update everyone with and big plans were made for 2013. Stay tuned for developments in the first quarter of next year.
G2Z Organisations and Communities
The hunt is on! We would love to know about all of the G2Z organisations and communities out there across Australia!
There are sure to be groups that we are unaware of so if you know of a group or whole community that is implementing the G2Z strategies please let us know here. The aim is to have all participants featured on the G2Z website to ensure that it is not only a fabulous resource for the sector and community at large but so that these hard working people get the recognition they deserve!
We are currently in the process of updating all of the information listed on the G2Z Directory.
If your organisation is featured here please contact us so that we can ensure all information is up to date. If you are not yet featured in the Directory contact us so that we can add your details.
2013 G2Z Summit
A huge thanks to everyone who responded to the email questionnaire distributed in September.
We had an overwhelming number of responses with some fantastic suggestions and feedback! It is clear that everyone is looking forward to the next Summit (so are we!) and currently the timing looks like it will be the first half of September. It was also clear that people enjoy going to the Gold Coast for a break so we can confirm it will again be held in Queensland. We are having some very encouraging discussions with some amazing speakers that are leaders in their respective fields. Start getting the word out now about Australia’s only shelter, rescue and pound focussed conference. Stay tuned, more details will be revealed early next year!
G2Z You Tube Channel
G2Z now has a You Tube channel!
On the channel you will find footage of each presentation given at the last Summit in 2011. This is a great resource that is handy for staff training, as support for Board/Council recommendations or just in case you missed them the first time round. Videos are being added all the time so get on over to take a look! http://www.youtube.com/user/getting2zero
If you are not currently involved in Getting to Zero check out this page on the website that will help you take the first step to saving lives.
Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year from all at G2Z HQ.
We hope that Santa spoils you and that kitten season is kind to you!
