Annual General Meeting 2016

Annual General Meeting 2016

The Dying With Dignity Victoria AGM took place on November 5 at the Unitarian Church in East Melbourne.

The DWDV Board members were thrilled to see just over 100 of our members attending, with some travelling from as far away as Ballarat.

Our guest speaker for the event was Mr Andrew Denton, who delivered a brilliant speech about the importance of well considered assisted dying legislation, as well as sharing some of the things that he and his organisation, Go Gentle Australia, have learned from campaigning in South Australia.

We thank everyone who attended, we hope you had an enjoyable afternoon, and we look forward to seeing everyone at our various events and workshops in 2017.
