Melbourne Accueil

Melbourne Accueil recently held its Annual General Meeting, and again this year the feedback was really positive!

Melbourne Accueil was created in 2012, a non profit association entirely dedicated to welcoming and helping new comers to Melbourne as well as animating the local life of the French community. Melbourne Accueil is a member of the worldwide networks of the FIAFE (Fédération Internationale Français et Francophones d’Expatriés).

In 2016-2017, Melbourne Accueil organised a wide range of activities: games for children, hikes, electoral night…. The activities were endless and people loved them.

All these wonderful achievements were only possible thanks to a first-rate team ! Géraldine Lautour-Akremi was reelected president, Laure Rouquette, vice-president. Marie Westerhof and Svetlana Bauchiere are respectively secretary and treasurer. The team has had a new member this year, Anna Crasnier. 

In spite of all these beautiful achievements, Melbourne Accueil needs more passionate people who could come and help the association grow. For 2017-2018, the association is recruiting : 

  • neighbourhood hostesses.
  • people to help motivate the members on a regular basis.
  • volunteers to help at special events.
  • one person in charge of regularly updating our website and Facebook page.
