The Management Committee of Recovery Rocks Community Inc. wishes to advise all its members and interested people that effective immediately we will no longer be offering our weekly peer support group and monthly social gatherings.
With limited capacity and resources we can no longer sustain these activities. We will however continue offering our monthly newsletter, website and Facebook page, whilst following our recruitment process to find more management committee members. We will keep you posted with our future endeavors.

You will find an invitation to join us for some fun on our upcoming retreat with a final reminder to get your registration forms in by the 1st of September. We share news of change that has occurred on our management committee as we acknowledge a recent resignation and plan for future recruitment.
We work towards getting a more active online presence by asking you to support us via social media on Facebook by joining our closed group and visiting our website. We also share other ways you can get involved in person by attending RRCi and our supporters events.

As Recovery Rocks Community Inc. is slowly growing, the Management Committee has found the need to review some of our current systems. Within this review, it was determined that our current Postal Address was not sustainable; and have determined that we needed to change from our previous address.
We would like to advise everyone that our new postal address is:
RECOVERY ROCKS COMMUNITY INC.
PO Box 11
Kwinana WA, 6966
We are currently in the process of updating these details within our processes.
We would appreciate your patience and attention to this change as we finalise this process.

Our latest Annual General Meeting (AGM) and network meeting had turned out to be our most productive and successful meeting to date. Our Annual Report was received and accepted by our members with appreciation, and our new Management Committee has been selected. The new executive positions to be allocated at our next Management Committee meeting in March.
At the conclusion of our AGM everyone had the chance to relax and enjoy the vast selection of food on offer for lunch, to catch up with friends and get to know new members and those whom had attended to learn more about our organisation.
The Management Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all who volunteered, helped to prepare documents and reports, welcomed attendees and coordinated the after event lunch. Without all your support this AGM would not have been the success it was. We also would like to thank everyone who came to dedicate their day towards supporting our organisation and showing interest in learning what our organisation has been doing within the past year to meet the needs of our members.
A BIG Thank you to ALL!
As a side note, a quick update on the new content you may find on our website. We have added our latest Annual Report and our 2018-2019 Strategic Plan. You may find these documents within our Publication pages or click on the images below.

There is only 13 more days to go (AGM DATE: February 25th) and the management committee are busy little bees right now, working hard to finalize the Annual Report and other information we feel will benefit our members. We’re eager to catch up and share with all our members information about the range of tasks we have achieved last year and excited to make a few announcements of upcoming activities and initiatives for 2018.
Your welcome to bring your family, friends or anyone else who is interested to learn more about Recovery Rocks Community Inc. It’s a great opportunity to network with each other and get to learn more about what each new management committee candidate can bring to our organisation (over a relaxed shared meal). The management committee candidates are also eager to meet our members, to learn more about each member and what they feel are important matters the organisation should address.
