Note to Gemco Players Members and Life Members

The Gemco Players Committee has proposed changes to the Constitution (Articles of Association) in order to bring Gemco Players up-to-date with recent changes to the legislation. There will be an Open Forum for discussion of the Constitution in early February, a draft copy of which will be sent out to all current, financial members in the week starting 1 February.

If you have any questions, please contact Evie Housham, The President via The Secretary at gemcoplayers@gmail.com

AGM ON 14 March - Mark this date in your diary now!

 The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Gemco Players Community Theatre Inc will take place on Saturday 14 March, there will be a BBQ from 12 noon. Meeting at 2pm, in the Gem Foyer, 19 Kilvington Drive, Emerald, followed by Elections and then a general meeting of the people.

You may be wondering why we are holding an AGM early.

In 2012 the Government made minor adjustments to Model Rules by which non-profit Associations conduct themselves. This has affected our Constitution and so we have had to look very carefully at the rules that were set up by the Gemco Players Committee of 1994. On familiarising ourselves with the terms of this document we discovered that the End of our Financial Year is 31st December, and we are required to call an AGM within five months of that date. 

There is a great need for inspired, new, young and well seasoned people to be active in the decisions made for the future of Gemco Players. If you would like to nominate yourself for being on the committee, please send your interest via email to The Secretary at gemcoplayers@gmail.com. Please say if you are interested in a specific role. There is no need for you to have already been on the Gemco Players Committee before but it would be preferable to make the transition easier, however, you do have to be a Financial Member. Descriptions of the Committee roles can be found on the website under 'About Us' in the side bar.

However, you don't have to be on the committee to make a difference and even a small commitment can make a huge difference. So come along, enjoy a sausage or two and hear what we've been doing and what's in store for the months ahead. 

We look forward to seeing you there. Evie Housham, The President
