Newcomers is back - starting on 19 October 2011

Newcomers is a confidential support group for guys coming out who are too old for School's Out (ie guys who are in their early 20s and over). It's also a place where gay men new to Wellington can get to know people.

The group has been in hibernation for a while, but we're re-launching it again starting on Wednesday 19 October from 6pm to 7.30pm. Depending on the level of interest, we're planning to meet at the same time every second Wednesday up until Christmas.

If you're interested in coming along, check out the Newcomers webpage and send us an email or give us a call.

AGM update

Hi everyone. Yesterday Gay Wellington held its Annual General Meeting. There were about 20 folk present which was a really good turn-out.

George presented an impressive annual report as co-chair and I presented the financial report which, for the first time in several years, showed a modest surplus. Both will be posted on our website shortly.

We had a few officer changes. I have joined George as co-chair, Chris has taken up the treasurer role, and Sara is the new secretary. We all gave a big thanks to Greg for his outstanding work as secretary over the last few years.

If you'd like to join the group don't hesitate to contact us any time. We're anticipating a final intake training session sometime in November. And if you're already a member you're always welcome to put your name down for one of the various committees.
