The workshop we held in May this year was very interesting and useful and provided us with many ideas. It did strengthen my view of what the Purpose of the AUV is. Over the past 18 months, the board has been trying to define the Purpose in the current environment, and this workshop helped cement our views. We still need to fine tune and formalise it, but in draft form I believe is as follows:
To ‘unite’ all Ukrainians in Victoria.
To support members and Ukrainian organisations; and
To promote Ukraine, its history and culture amongst the Ukrainian community and in the wider Australian context.
I believe the session was also valuable in that it generated many specific ideas for us all and the board to consider.
